Have you ever stopped to think that right above Locarno there is a panoramic viewpoint that's very easy to reach, which offers spectacular sights from the lowest point above sea level in Switzerland, the river Maggia's delta in Ascona, right up to the summit of Monte Rosa, the highest in the whole country?

Since 1906, the funicular railway has carried residents and guests from the centre of Locarno up through the gorge to Orselina, the starting point of today's designer cable car to Cardada. The panoramic chairlift makes the final ascent to Cimetta, situated high above Lake Maggiore at 1,450m.
