This is the magic view which greats summer visitors to the
area of Gornergrat, although photography cannot do the awesome scale and beauty
of these mountains justice. The view from Gornergrat is truly one of the most
magnificent mountain panoramas in the world. Gornergrat is easily accessible
from Zermatt in 45 minutes in a spectacular mountain train ride. If the views
aren't enough, superb walks begin from here and terrific ski runs in winter.
Note the spectacular Gorner glacier flowing along the valley floor. It is an
enormous mass of ice and snow - and the second longest glacier in Europe.
This panorama is also available in a full
