Gemmi – historic pass

The Gemmi Train climbs the steep Gemmi face to the wonderful mountain world of the Gemmi Region, which is famous for its rich traditions. The Gemmi Train was built in 1957 and has since then transported many a guest to an elevation of 2,350 meters.

Already the Romans trod this path from the main Valais valley to the north. The historic pass crossing unites Leukerbad with Kandersteg – without roads, instead mountain rail.

Mont Salève – Geneva and Mont Blanc

A rewarding excursion destination is Mont Salève, which is situated in neighbouring France.

Geneva’s home mountain lies around 900 meters above the Jet d'Eau, on French terrain, yet at the heart of Geneva. And the mountain has been connected to mountain rail since over 120 years.

Kronenberg – the family mountain

The Kronberg (1663m) is the family mountain in Appenzellerland, offering many attractions both in the summer and the winter. The valley station of the aerial cableway is next to the Jakobsbad Train Station, high up in the Gonton valley.
