The Sörenberg holiday resort lies in the Entlebuch Unesco biosphere at an altitude of 1165 meters. With its unique plant and animal life, this fantastic moor landscape earned the region the distinction as one of a mere 400-biosphere reserves in the world. A true highlight for nature lovers and families.
15 kilometres of meditative hiking pleasure and one of Switzerland's most beautiful "water trails" run between Soubey and St-Ursanne.
Lake Lugano is at the southernmost tip of the Tessin, the holiday region south of the ridge of the Alps, and it reaches its arms out into Italy. Thanks to the mild Mediterranean climate, there are even citrus fruit trees growing here, and visitors can sunbathe under palm trees.
"Of all the places I know, this is the dearest and most interesting to me", declared Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, when he travelled through the Ursern valley three times in 1779. The Ursern valley (canton Uri) at the foot of the Gotthard Pass is one of the most impressive upland valleys in Switzerland. Andermatt (1440 m), the largest of the three villages in the valley, is at the crossroads of the mountain passes from north to south and from east to west.
