Métro Lausanne – true underground rail

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 railway line through to Croisettes beneath the Lausanne station presents the world’s greatest subway drop – an amazing 336-meter altitude difference, with maximum 12% gradient.

The summit gallery of the panoramic viewing platform at the Stockhorn’s Northface. Here one enjoys a fantastic sweeping view to Thun, to Lake Thun and the Aare Valley.

Piz Nair – by Guardiaun Grischun

High above St. Moritz where the Säntis cable car ends - at almost 2,500 meters above sea level - is the starting point of the cable car going up to the Piz Nair.

Two funicular railways leaving from the St. Moritz village take you via Chantarella to Corviglia, from where the cable car whisks you up to the famous vantage point in the Suvretta region.

Pizol – single summit and five lakes

From mountain train to mountain train, from lake to lake - the Five-Lakes-Hike on Mt Pizol is a classic and is considered one of Switzerland's most beautiful high Alpine tours. Pizol means high peak in Romansh but these days there is luckily a modern aerial cable car that brings one up to the 2227-meter-high summit.

Two gondola railways make their way up from Bad Ragaz or Wangs to the edge of the forest, from where you enjoy far-reaching views over the Rhine Valley to Lake Constance – and chairlifts carrying you to the Pizol ridge if you wish to venture further afield.
