Gornergrat – at the heart of it all

The perfect excursion (3,089 m): Impressive and majestic, standing out against the sky, the Matterhorn – a national symbol – steals the show from the other 37 four-thousand-metre mountains visible from here.

Over 20 gigantic 4000 and more meter-high peaks surround the rocky ridge between the Findelen and Gornergletscher, at 1500 meters above Zermatt. Since over a century a cog railway has made its way here – and still does today, every 24 minutes.

Diavolezza – above the glaciers

Diavolezza, Italian for she-devil, is a popular Engadine mountain. According to legend, a beautiful mountain fairy once upon a time misguided men, so that they vanished forever. Actually, Diavolezza is itself an unbelievably beautiful temptation.

Impressive views as seen from the Piz Palü – above Bellavista and on to Piz Bernina. Simply stand back and marvel, or delight in some kind of adventure: Diavolezza is the perfect spot for both.

Rigi – Queen of mountains

The Rigi trains can look back on an interesting history, which has already filled thick volumes. Niklaus Riggenbach, the inventor of the cogwheel train performed pioneering work. The train from Vitznau overcomes on a stretch of 6975 meters an elevation gain of 1313 meters. The train from Arth-Goldau conquers a height difference of 1234 meters on the 8551-meter ride.

Switzerland’s most visited scenic mountain is discovered in central Switzerland – towering between the three Lucerne Zug and Lauerzersee lakes. And with Swiss Pass & Co you can even travel to the top of Mount Rigi free of charge.

Stanserhorn – the friendliest mountain

The 1,898 meter high Stanserhorn offers a view of ten lakes, 100 kilometers of the Alpine mountain range and three countries. Even the arrival by nostalgic cable car has its charms. The most convenient spots to enjoy the panorama are in the revolving restaurant or on the viewing platform.

Since 1893 open wooden carriages slowly make their way in leisurely manner from Stans direction Stanserhorn – terminating at the mid station after which you board the CabriO and a new generation in transport.
