Polybahn – emblem of Zurich

The Polybahn in the middle of the City of Zurich is more than a piece of nostalgia. Ultramodern technology in nostalgic garb guarantees safe operation while preserving a living testimony to Zurich’s pioneering achievements in the late 19th century.

In operation since way back in 1889, today Polybahn funicular rail transports around 50 passengers every two minutes, in both directions. And the route is the very same as that of when it first commenced.

Dent d'Hérens 4171 m

Way up high, in fact no longer in the drainage basin for the valley, is the Dent d'Hérens, from a mountaineer's point of view in the shadow of the Matterhorn, just a few kilometres away. The usual starting point for the difficult route that most people take to the top on the Italian border is the Rifugio Aosta on the southern side of the ridge. The first ascent of the Dent d'Hérens was on 12 August 1863.
