Säntis – a much welcomed sight

Just like a unpenetrable fortress the Alpsteinmassiv juts out high above the undulating hills of the Appenzell: its highest point is 2502-meter-high Mount Säntis. The ride in the gondola is breath-taking: take in Lake Constance, the Vorarlberg, the Graubünden, Glarus and Bernese Alps. On a clear day one can even see the Vosges Mountains and the Black Forest.

Meteorologists knew why they established a weather station on this mountain already in 1882. The Säntis is seen from near and far…. just like the panoramic views as seen from the summit.

Cardada Cimetta – bird’s-eye view

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?

The deepest and highest points in Switzerland at a glance – in the south the Lago Maggiore, and to the west the Valais high Alps with Dufourspitze. All this at just a few minutes away from the lively town of Locarno.
