Summer Skiing on the Matterhorn

In the Matterhorn glacier paradise the Alps' highest summer skiing area and Europe's largest Snowpark are to be found.

Attention snowboard enthusiasts and ski fans: On the Theodul Glacier you will find the Alps' highest summer skiing areas and Europe's largest Snowpark.

Brienzer Rothorn, 2266m

The Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) high above Lake Brienz offers a wonderful view, pleasant rooms, delicious food, and getting there is a quite an extraordinary experience.

Getting to the Hotel Rothorn Kulm (2266 m.a.s.l.) is quite an experience. No prosaic getting there by car or even by aerial cable-car but by steam-driven rack-and-pinion train. The ride there can even be made more romantic by getting to Brienz by a paddle-steamer from Interlaken plying Lake Brienz and Lake Thun.

Ebenalp and Wildkirchli

Even the Neanderthals were on Ebenalp (Eben Alp). There are three caves, and it is proven that prehistoric people once lived in them. Today there is a mountain restaurant and an altar at the Wildkirchli Caves. A cable car whisks visitors comfortably to the Alp.

Already Neanderthal men were here where today a cableway sweeps visitors up and over the rugged rocks of the once populated Ebenalp caves - and a great departure point for various discoveries.

Monte Brè

Monte Brè towers above the city of Lugano and is considered to be the sunniest mountain in Switzerland. This might be the reason why the rare Christmas Rose (an endangered species) grows here, which can otherwise only flourish in Southern Europe. The funicular takes visitors up the mountain from Cassarate.

It's worth making the trip here just for the views of the city and Lake Lugano. Opposite stands San Salvatore, Monte San Giorgio looms above the lake and dam of Melide and the Valais Alps can be seen to the west.
