Pilatus – Alpine Outpost

Close to Lucerne, and easily reached by public transport, Mount Pilatus (2132m) has remained a much-loved destination for young and old alike. 2 cable cars, 2 hotels, 7 restaurants, the steepest cogwheel railway in the world and the largest rope park in Central Switzerland promise a day out to remember!

Emblem of central Switzerland and home mountain to the town of Lucerne, that’s Pilatus – from where the scenic "Golden Round Trip" by boat, red funicular rail and cableway back to the start makes a memorable trip.

Matterhorn - Symbol for Switzerland

The Matterhorn and Switzerland are inseparably linked to each other. The pyramid shaped colossus of a mountain, which is very difficult to climb, is said to be the most-photographed mountain in the world. The Klein-Matterhorn ("Little Matterhorn"), which can be reached via a funicular, lies adjacent to the Matterhorn.

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.
