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.

Parpan Rothorn – summit views

Without exagerating one can say that 1000 peaks are visible from the Parpan Rothorn. Mountain peaks jut out everywhere.

A viewpoint known long ago for ore mining –whereas today for far-reaching views. It could be as many as 1000 summits you get a glimpse of from here.

Lauchernalp – sunny terrace

The Lötschental has for a long time been the end of the world and so has remained wonderfully unspoiled. A mountain climbers' Eldorado opens up from the Lauchernalp onwards.

Above the treeline, on a terrace created by a glacier, you soon discover the sun-spoilt Alps of the Lötschen Valley: Krummenalp, Hockenalp, Lauchernalp, Weritzalp and Tellialp.

Hoher Kasten – above the Rhine Valley

The Hoher Kasten has been accessible via an aerial cable car since 1964. In a few minutes one glides from Brülisau near Appenzell to the peak at 1,795 meters, famous for its modern revolving restaurant and panoramic view. The ride alone offers a fascinating view of the hills of Appenzellerland and the majestic Alpstein.

Striking views are yours to enjoy from the viewing platform between Appenzell country and the St. Gallen Rhine Valley, as well as from the remarkable ridge direction Kreuzberge. The cableway from Brülisau has been making its way for you to view top sights since 1964.
