Walenpfad: The Swiss Cableway Experience Trail

This density is unique - nowhere else in Switzerland are there as many cable railways in such a small space as in central Switzerland. About a hundred of them transport passengers comfortably up to the most beautiful hiking areas. At the start of the four-hour Walen Trail the new cabin carries up to 15 passengers at a time to the Bannalp, and at the end there is the exclusive open panorama cabin to Engelberg.

Here is a chance for unique mountain adventures and mountain railway experiences - the Walen Trail is a sophisticated pleasure tour with panoramic views.

Following the Doubs: The Swiss Water Trail

France to one side and Switzerland to the other, with a river running through the middle: The Doubs. Its long, ruggedly picturesque valley is virtually uninhabited and being a nature reserve it is even more of a paradise for fishermen and hikers. The riverside path between Soubey and St. Ursanne opens up a truly original part of Switzerland. Through almost untouched riverscape, it runs past fish taverns and swimming areas.

15 kilometres of meditative hiking pleasure and one of Switzerland's most beautiful "water trails" run between Soubey and St-Ursanne.

Illgraben-Bhutan Bridge

Erosion caused the mountain to collapse and the vast, pale yellow and reddish rock basin to form, which becomes bigger every year. From the Grabenrad or the Illhorn (2,716 m) there are "fear inspiring" yet stunning views down into the Rhone valley.

High Alpine Route to Deep Blue Lake Oberblegi

The alpine route connecting Braunwald to Lake Oberblegi and down to Schwanden leads hikers through the weird rock formations of the moranes of the Glaernisch Range.

The alpine route connecting Braunwald to Lake Oberblegi and down to Schwanden leads hikers through the weird rock formations of the moranes of the Glaernisch Range. Indeed, the deep-blue lake itself was created by moranes that dammed the melting waters. Rushing mountain streams and beautiful alpine flowers round off the picture.
