Felsenegg – a glimpse of Pluto from Zurich

Besides the well-known train to the Üetliberg, the aerial cableway Adliswil - Felsenegg, south of Zürich, constitutes an additional link to the Albis chain and therefore to Zürich’s very own mountain.

Albishorn, Hochwacht, Felsenegg and Üetliberg are the names of the best-known vantage points on the Albis chain – conveniently connected to one another with hiking and walking trails.

Bettmerhorn – Aletsch Glacier

The first gondola train to the Bettmerhorn, built in 1975, has transported in its 20 years of operation over eight million guests. With the opening of its new 8-seater gondola train in 1996, the resort of Bettmeralp has set new standards – after all, the train is considered the most modern of its kind.

A combination of close and distant views: On the one side the longest glacial flow of the Alps, and Rhone Valley with views as far as the Weisshorn and Matterhorn on the other.

Eggishorn – Aletsch Glacier

You will reach the summit of the Eggishorn at 2926 metres above sea level, still completely overwhelmed by the splendid journey over the Fiescheralp.

A piece of Unesco World Heritage close enough to touch, with the 23 kilometer-long "Jungfrau-Aletsch" directly in front of your eyes and stunning views that invite you to stay and ponder.

Dent Blanche: Queen of the Alps

The Dent Blanche (4357m) is a largely ice-free peak in the Valais High Alps... with its name possibly originating from a cartographic mix-up. (Blanche = white). Dent Blanche is just 10km west of Zermatt, between the Val d'Herens, Val d'Anniviers and Mattertal, on the linguistic divide between French and German in the Upper Valais.
