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.

Brienzer Rothorn, 2266m

The Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) high above Lake Brienz offers a wonderful view, pleasant rooms, delicious food, and getting there is a quite an extraordinary experience.

Getting to the Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) is quite an experience. No prosaic getting there by car or even by aerial cable-car but by steam-driven rack-and-pinion train. The ride there can even be made more romantic by getting to Brienz by a paddle-steamer from Interlaken plying Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.

Ebenalp and Wildkirchli

Even the Neanderthals were on Ebenalp (Eben Alp). There are three caves, and it is proven that prehistoric people once lived in them. Today there is a mountain restaurant and an altar at the Wildkirchli Caves. A cable car whisks visitors comfortably to the Alp.

Already Neanderthal men were here where today a cableway sweeps visitors up and over the rugged rocks of the once populated Ebenalp caves - and a great departure point for various discoveries.
