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