Felsenegg – a glimpse of Pluto from Zurich

Besides the well-known train to the Üetliberg, the aerial cableway Adliswil - Felsenegg, south of Zürich, constitutes an additional link to the Albis chain and therefore to Zürich’s very own mountain.

Albishorn, Hochwacht, Felsenegg and Üetliberg are the names of the best-known vantage points on the Albis chain – conveniently connected to one another with hiking and walking trails.

Bettmerhorn – Aletsch Glacier

The first gondola train to the Bettmerhorn, built in 1975, has transported in its 20 years of operation over eight million guests. With the opening of its new 8-seater gondola train in 1996, the resort of Bettmeralp has set new standards – after all, the train is considered the most modern of its kind.

A combination of close and distant views: On the one side the longest glacial flow of the Alps, and Rhone Valley with views as far as the Weisshorn and Matterhorn on the other.

Eggishorn – Aletsch Glacier

You will reach the summit of the Eggishorn at 2926 metres above sea level, still completely overwhelmed by the splendid journey over the Fiescheralp.

A piece of Unesco World Heritage close enough to touch, with the 23 kilometer-long "Jungfrau-Aletsch" directly in front of your eyes and stunning views that invite you to stay and ponder.

Monte Brè – Views over Lake Lugano

Monte Brè towers above the city of Lugano and is considered to be the sunniest mountain in Switzerland. This might be the reason why the rare Christmas Rose (an endangered species) grows here, which can otherwise only flourish in Southern Europe. The funicular takes visitors up the mountain from Cassarate.

Since1912 funicular rail has been making its way from Cassarate by Lugano to the scenic mountain above Lake Lugano.
