Monte Brè – Views over Lake Lugano

Monte Brè towers above the city of Lugano and is considered to be the sunniest mountain in Switzerland. This might be the reason why the rare Christmas Rose (an endangered species) grows here, which can otherwise only flourish in Southern Europe. The funicular takes visitors up the mountain from Cassarate.

Since1912 funicular rail has been making its way from Cassarate by Lugano to the scenic mountain above Lake Lugano.

Schilthorn – 007 James Bond

The aluminum-covered revolving restaurant "Piz Gloria" on the Schilthorn was used in the filming of a few key scenes in the James Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". There is a permanent exhibition that reminds one of this fact.

"Piz Gloria" is the name of the scenic film mountain at 1300m above the traffic-free Mürren resort. And the scenery and panoramic views in front of the main alpine ridge are pretty impressive too.

Brienzer Rothorn, 2266m

The Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) high above Lake Brienz offers a wonderful view, pleasant rooms, delicious food, and getting there is a quite an extraordinary experience.

Getting to the Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) is quite an experience. No prosaic getting there by car or even by aerial cable-car but by steam-driven rack-and-pinion train. The ride there can even be made more romantic by getting to Brienz by a paddle-steamer from Interlaken plying Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.
