Juf

Avers/Juf is the highest settlement in Europe, occupied all year round. Here, a few stalwart mountain dwellers defy the frosty temperatures of the long winter at an impressive 2126 m.a.s.l., holding out in front of the stove until the cold, white apparition has passed, and looking forward to the few short weeks of the mountain summer.

Avers/Juf is the highest settlement in Europe, occupied all year round.

Gersau

Gersau occupies a romantic location on the southern slopes of the Rigi by Lake Lucerne, on what is sometimes called the "Riviera of Central Switzerland". High above Gersau is the Rigi-Scheidegg area, both a paradise for walkers and a small winter sports area, with excellent views.
