Lake Zurich

The Lake Zurich shipping company offers a comprehensive selection of short and long cruises. In summer the two vintage paddle-steamers also operate alongside the 15 motor-powered cruise ships. And as the shipping company is part of Zurich’s integrated transport network, passengers are able to benefit from extremely attractive tariffs. A cruise on Lake Zurich is relaxation in its purest form, and an experience for all the senses.

The bent, almost banana-shaped Lake Zurich is framed on the southern side by the Albis and Zimmerberg hills and on the north by the Pfannenstiel chain of hills. The lake is bordered by the cantons of Zurich, St.Gallen and Schwyz. At the western end lies Zurich, Switzerland’s largest city.

Glacier 3000 – glacial plateau

Cableway, architecture, adventure and stunning alpine views sum up an excursion to the "Les Diablerets" massif. And non-stop activities at almost 3000 meters above sea level.

Brienzer Rothorn – steam mountain

A nostalgic rack railroad driven by steam engines leads up the Brienz Rothorn, which was even in the 19th century one of the most popular vantage points for views in the Bernese Oberland. The train takes about one hour to climb the 1,678 meters difference in height.

Puffing we head on and up in Brienz, while ascending in a second climb from Sörenberg. On the south side with steam since 1892, and aboard large cabins on the mountain railway from the north.

Pilatus – Alpine Outpost

Close to Lucerne, and easily reached by public transport, Mount Pilatus (2132m) has remained a much-loved destination for young and old alike. 2 cable cars, 2 hotels, 7 restaurants, the steepest cogwheel railway in the world and the largest rope park in Central Switzerland promise a day out to remember!

Emblem of central Switzerland and home mountain to the town of Lucerne, that’s Pilatus – from where the scenic "Golden Round Trip" by boat, red funicular rail and cableway back to the start makes a memorable trip.
