Zermatt Gornergrat, 1928

Coulon, Eric de poster: Zermatt Gornergrat

A ride up the 10,135 foot Gornergrat on the mountain railway has been a highlight of Swiss tourism since its first operation in 1898. Winding up 4,000 vertical feet, it offers stunning views of the Matterhorn. The breathtaking summit is a jumping off point for hikers eager to scale this and 28 other peaks rising over 13,000 feet in the surrounding area.

Coulon's rare Art Deco poster captures the majesty of the Gorner Glacier, considered the 2nd longest in the Alps. It is one of the most desirable images of the Swiss resort.
