The bridge trail

There is a plan to create a continuous circular panoramic path around Lake Thun with up to seven new footbridges – three have already been built. The suspension bridge over the Gummi gorge near Sigriswil is the centrepiece of this hike down to Oberhofen on Lake Thun.

Rochers de Naye

The prominent rocks of Rochers-de-Naye above Montreux constitute one of the most beautiful vantage points in the region. At 2,045 meters above sea level the view sweeps across Lake Geneva and the surrounding Alps. Or into the burrows of marmots.

It takes the panorama carriages on the cog railway about an hour to complete the interesting route via Glion to the Dent de Jaman and round the mountain to the summit. Towering 1,650m above the town, these rocks (“les rochers”) are as much a part of Montreux as the Chillon Castle, the flower promenade and the jazz festival.

Cardada Cimetta

Have you ever stopped to think that right above Locarno there is a panoramic viewpoint that's very easy to reach, which offers spectacular sights from the lowest point above sea level in Switzerland, the river Maggia's delta in Ascona, right up to the summit of Monte Rosa, the highest in the whole country?

Since 1906, the funicular railway has carried residents and guests from the centre of Locarno up through the gorge to Orselina, the starting point of today's designer cable car to Cardada. The panoramic chairlift makes the final ascent to Cimetta, situated high above Lake Maggiore at 1,450m.
