Sleep among the peaks at over 10,000 feet in elevation, where cloud wisps glide past your window and the Milky Way fills the sky. Normally, this is an altitude where you find researchers and mountain climbers toughing it out in tents. But at the Kulmhotel Gornergrat, you’ll be among the exclusive few who check in at altitude in utmost comfort, firmly grounded among black rock peaks, the power of a massive glacier and an immense blue sky. Perched high on the mountain overnight, the hotel becomes your personal observation station. Rooms on the west side have a sensational panoramic view of the Matterhorn. Rooms on the south side provide an unobstructed view of the Monte Rosa Massif and its huge glaciers. Enhancing the views outside your window, each modern, minimalist room is accented with Swiss pine, a topo map and a piece of rock from the peak of the mountain after which the room is named. Two twin bed beds can be converted to a king, and the en suite bathroom has a shower. Wi-Fi is available throughout the property. The sun terrace lets you take in 29 individual 13,000-foot peaks on display, with delicious food and drink on the table. And once it becomes cool outside, move into the inviting atmosphere of the indoor restaurant where impressive mountains are omnipresent through the panoramic windows.
