San Salvatore – pinnacle of enjoyment

Lugano's Sugarloaf Mountain, Monte San Salvatore: one reaches its peak comfortably via cable car, or one can take the most challenging fixed rope trail in Switzerland to the peak. There is a magnificent panoramic view at 912 meters above sea level.

Lugano’s home mountain and pinnacle of enjoyment - that’s San Salvatore! The striking mountain south of the town boasts 360° views over the lake and environs, far south and to the high Alps in the west.The funicular railway up this landmark mountain starts in Lugano-Paradiso.

Pilatus

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!

Standing 2,119m high, Pilatus is the city of Lucerne's home mountain. Float through the air in the cable car that feels like a helicopter cockpit – or ride along vertical rockfaces with a 48% gradient in the historic cog railway, the steepest in the world... Pilatus is a mountain of contrasts.

Gornergrat Railway

The perfect excursion (3,089 m): Impressive and majestic, standing out against the sky, the Matterhorn – a national symbol – steals the show from the other 37 four-thousand-metre mountains visible from here.

29 peaks over 4,000m high surround the rocky ridge between the Findel and Gorner Glaciers, 1,500m above Zermatt. Today, Europe's highest open-air cog railway runs from Zermatt station to the Gornergrat in about half an hour – at 24-minute intervals every single day.
