Moonlight fascination

Gleaming silver peaks

The light of the moon drapes the 29 four-thousanders surrounding the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat in gleaming silver. The snow-capped peaks are illuminated, and the moonlit night is exhilarating. Look forward to a tasty cheese fondue, served with a helping of Swiss folklore. To round off what is sure be a highly enjoyable evening, ski down to Riffelalp or take the train to Zermatt.
