Gelmerbahn – steeply up to the Gelmersee lake

The Gelmer cable car with its 106% gradient is Europe's steepest cable car. The ride in the open carriages takes one up to Lake Gelmer, which is situated at an altitude of 1,860 meters above sea level. The region where the reservoir is located is the starting point for hikes and mountain tours.

Those in seek of a thrilling ride find one here! A monstrous climb of maximum 106 percent undisputably makes this funicular railway the steepest in Europe.

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.

Rochers de Naye – high above the lake

The prominent rocks of Rochers-de-Naye above Montreux constitute one of the most beautiful vantage points in the region. At 2,045 meters above sea level the view sweeps across Lake Geneva and the surrounding Alps. Or into the burrows of marmots.

The rocks (les rochers) – towering 2042 meters above the town, are as much a part of Montreux as the Chillon Castle. Already back in 1892 the first small steam train made its way up to Rochers de Naye from Glion.
