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.

Ebenalp and Wildkirchli

Even the Neanderthals were on Ebenalp (Eben Alp). There are three caves, and it is proven that prehistoric people once lived in them. Today there is a mountain restaurant and an altar at the Wildkirchli Caves. A cable car whisks visitors comfortably to the Alp.

Already Neanderthal men were here where today a cableway sweeps visitors up and over the rugged rocks of the once populated Ebenalp caves - and a great departure point for various discoveries.

Solar and Wind Power Stations at Mount Soleil and Mount Crosin

One of the most important renenwable energy centres in Europe can be found in the Bernese Jura: the wind power station on Mount Crosin and the solar power station on Mount Soleil.

The photovoltaic solar power station operates on Mount Soleil. Wind turbines stand on Mount Crosin.
