"Celestial World" is the slogan of Mont Pélerin and indeed, the slogan holds some truth. It is considered one of the best vantage points onto Lake Geneva. The elevator that brings guests up is called "Plein Ciel" (Full Skies) making getting up as easy as pie. Once on top, charming inns that offer lunch and snacks and intact nature make this a perfect experience.
Mt.Wetterhorn rises majestically and is easily recognizably just above the Grosse Scheidegg. It is just because it is so close to the famous mountain triumvirate Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau that it is less known, but injustly so. The Grosse Scheidegg is the shortest connection between Grindelwald and Meiringen and is in itself a point of departure for many great hikes.
This is a short but interesting hike full of local legends that date back to medieval times. The legend has it that runners from the two villages Altdorf and Glarus met up at the stone marker to determine who should own a certain part of the area. The hike connects the Klausen Pass to the Uri Plain. The impressive Toedi Range and Mt. Clariden are the focal points at most times.
