The 152.8 meter-high lift to the Bürgenstock looks like a heaven-bound rocket.

San Salvatore – pinnacle of enjoyment

Lugano's Sugarloaf Mountain, Monte San Salvatore: one reaches its peak comfortably via cable car, or one can take the most challenging fixed rope trail in Switzerland to the peak. There is a magnificent panoramic view at 912 meters above sea level.

Lugano’s home mountain and pinnacle of enjoyment - that’s San Salvatore! The striking mountain south of the town boasts 360° views over the lake and environs, far south and to the high Alps in the west.

The Gelmer cable car with its 106% gradient is Europe's steepest cable car. The ride in the open carriages takes one up to Lake Gelmer, which is situated at an altitude of 1,860 meters above sea level. The region where the reservoir is located is the starting point for hikes and mountain tours.

Those in seek of a thrilling ride find one here! A monstrous climb of maximum 106 percent undisputably makes this funicular railway the steepest in Europe.
