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.

Monte Brè – Views over Lake Lugano

Monte Brè towers above the city of Lugano and is considered to be the sunniest mountain in Switzerland. This might be the reason why the rare Christmas Rose (an endangered species) grows here, which can otherwise only flourish in Southern Europe. The funicular takes visitors up the mountain from Cassarate.

Since1912 funicular rail has been making its way from Cassarate by Lugano to the scenic mountain above Lake Lugano.

Schilthorn – 007 James Bond

The aluminum-covered revolving restaurant "Piz Gloria" on the Schilthorn was used in the filming of a few key scenes in the James Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". There is a permanent exhibition that reminds one of this fact.

"Piz Gloria" is the name of the scenic film mountain at 1300m above the traffic-free Mürren resort. And the scenery and panoramic views in front of the main alpine ridge are pretty impressive too.
