The Schatzalp railway has been running to the tranquil south-facing sun terrace since 1899. And in the environs of the former sanatorium, Thomas Mann once gathered inspiration for his "Der Zauberberg" novel.< br />
More than 3500 species of plant blossom between June and September in the botanical gardens on the Schatzalp; including species from mountain regions all over the world such as Pyrenees, New Zealand, China, Nepal, Tibet and naturally Switzerland!
Plans for the proposed 105-meter-high residential tower are intended to prevent urban sprawl and set an example of modern architecture in the Alps.
