Cardada Cimetta – bird’s-eye view

Have you ever stopped to think that right above Locarno there is a panoramic viewpoint that's very easy to reach, which offers spectacular sights from the lowest point above sea level in Switzerland, the river Maggia's delta in Ascona, right up to the summit of Monte Rosa, the highest in the whole country?

The deepest and highest points in Switzerland at a glance – in the south the Lago Maggiore, and to the west the Valais high Alps with Dufourspitze. All this at just a few minutes away from the lively town of Locarno.

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.

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.
