• A panoramic view of 29 peaks above four thousand metres.
  • During peak season, the Gornergrat railway runs a service from Zermatt station every 24 minutes.
  • You can rent sledges at Rotenboden station.


The sledge run from Rotenboden to Riffelberg on the Gornergrat is not only the highest of its kind in the Alps, but also one of the most beautiful, captivating visitors with its fantastically beautiful mountain panorama.

Surrounded by 29 peaks over four thousand metres, including the Matterhorn, the sledge ride hurtles some 1,6 km from Rotenboden (2,815 metres above sea level) to Riffelberg (2,582 metres above sea level). If one ride isn’t enough, you can experience the adventure a number of times by travelling back up to the starting point at Rotenboden with the Gornergrat railway.
