Allalin – at the heart of things

If one did not have before one’s mind’s eye the dazzling mountain world and the glittering glacier next to the entrance to the Alpine Metro, one would forget that the tunnel walls rushing by at a speed of ten meters per second are part of the High Alps.

Following a ten-minute gondola cable ride to Felskinn, the trip continues with a ten meters per second ascent in the highest Metro funicular as you make your way to the world’s highest revolving restaurant.

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.

As conglomerate rock in the forming of the Alps, Kronenberg precedes the Alpstein. A cable car takes you from the Jakobsbad station to the vantage point with mountain guesthouse.

Gemsstock – in the Gotthard region

In Andermatt it goes up everywhere - up to the Gotthard Pass, the Oberalp, to Nätschen and on the Gütsch and of course, to the Gemsstock.

A 1500-meter climb leads up from Andermatt to the Gemsstock at almost 3000 meters above sea level – from where you enjoy 360° views over half of Switzerland standing at the heart of the Swiss Alps.

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.
