Lausanne boasts the world’s smallest automatic Metro. The new 6-kilometer line connects the pier of Ouchy via the Lausanne Train Station and the Old Town with the Croisette district. Approximately one half of the route is underground.
The Kronberg (1663m) is the family mountain in Appenzellerland, offering many attractions both in the summer and the winter. The valley station of the aerial cableway is next to the Jakobsbad Train Station, high up in the Gonton valley.
A rewarding excursion destination is Mont Salève, which is situated in neighbouring France.
Dwarfs, alpine ghosts and root characters are key figures on the Klosters family mountain. Gondola-style rail runs from the village to the forest border of the Saas Alp.
