Mont Pèlerin – views over the lake

Passing through vineyards, orchards and forests, the funicular railway is the most comfortable means of reaching Mont-Pèlerin for an excursion. Vevey is situated on the railway route from Geneva/Lausanne into the Valais. The valley station of the Pèlerin funicular can be reached in 15 minutes on foot from Vevey train station.

Views from 700 meters above Lake Geneva following a funicular rail ride from Vevey via the Chardonne vineyards, then on foot and with the lift up the television tower.

Panoramic Viewing Platform on the Stockhorn

The summit gallery of the panoramic viewing platform at the Stockhorn’s Northface. Here one enjoys a fantastic sweeping view to Thun, to Lake Thun and the Aare Valley.


The Esterli Tower was built in 1974 by the local civic community. It replaces the tower built in 1905. The Esteri Tower is 49 meters high and consists of 19 concrete pipe elements. A staircase with 253 steps leads to the viewing platform, which is 45 meters above ground level. The platform is located at 602 meters above sea level.

Harder – viewing platform

Already in Interlaken you get a magnificent view of the famous mountain trio of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. But the high Alpine, glaciated world of four-thousand-meter peaks can be surveyed and admired even better atop the 1322-meter Mount Harder.

Views over Interlaken, the place "between the lakes". An ideal short excursion in order to catch a glimpse of the Jungfrau region and gather a few ideas for your next excursion.
