People seeking a thrill will find one here in the Haslital valley on the Bernese side of the Grimsel Pass. A monstrous climb of maximum 106 percent indisputably makes this funicular railway the steepest in Europe.

Trümmelbach Falls – in the Valley of the 72 Waterfalls

Loud thundering and roaring in the interior of the mountain, gurgling, foaming and churning water: these are the Trümmelbach Falls. They are Europe's largest subterranean water falls and are located in the Lauterbrunnen Valley, often called the valley of 72 waterfalls.

Stanserhorn – the friendliest mountain

The 1,898 meter high Stanserhorn offers a view of ten lakes, 100 kilometers of the Alpine mountain range and three countries. Even the arrival by nostalgic cable car has its charms. The most convenient spots to enjoy the panorama are in the revolving restaurant or on the viewing platform.

Enjoy the headwind and the view as you begin your ascent in the open funicular railway that rumbles just as it did 120 years ago – then change at the Kälti middle station and ride up to the Stanserhorn on the top deck of the futuristic CabriO cable car.
