Silsersee

Lej da Segl, Lej da Silvaplana, Lej da Champfèr and Lej da San Murezzan are the Romansh names of the four lakes of the Upper Engadine. The boat service from Maloja to Sils is the highest operating anywhere in Europe.

The shipping line with the highest location in Europe plows through this magnificent Alpine lake, situated at 1800 metres above sea level in 40 minutes - starting from Sils Maria.

Métro Lausanne – true underground rail

Lausanne boasts the world’s smallest automatic Metro. The new 6-kilometer line connects the pier of Ouchy via the Lausanne Train Station and the Old Town with the Croisette district. Approximately one half of the route is underground.

The railway line through to Croisettes beneath the Lausanne station presents the world’s greatest subway drop – an amazing 336-meter altitude difference, with maximum 12% gradient.

Madrisa – adventure for children

The Madrisa Train operators call the mountain station “Entrance to the Alpine Park Landscape”. And they are quite justified in doing so, for there are innumerable natural and cultural phenomena in a tiny space at the border between Graubünden and Vorarlberg.

Dwarfs, alpine ghosts and root characters are key figures on the Klosters family mountain. Gondola-style rail runs from the village to the forest border of the Saas Alp.

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.
