Le Moléson – close to the stars

The higher, the better! You will reach the peak of the Moleson by funicular up to Plan-Francey and then by cable car. While you glide up the northeast face, the horizon recedes ever more into the distance and a thousand sights come into view.

No wonder Freiburg citizens sing songs of the Moléson as the mountain that stole their hearts – already the journey to this scenic summit is a treat.The viewing platform on the roof of the mountain station and the giant telescope on the summit offer new perspectives.

Kronenberg – the family mountain

The Kronberg (1663m) is the family mountain in Appenzellerland, offering many attractions both in the summer and the winter. The valley station of the aerial cableway is next to the Jakobsbad Train Station, high up in the Gonton valley.

The cable car runs from the Jakobsbad station to the vantage point with its mountain guesthouse. Nowadays, the barefoot path, rope park and Alpine Coaster summer toboggan run by the valley station are just as famous as the view at the top, from the Hoher Kasten over the Säntis to the Lütispitz and across to the foothills of the Churfirsten range.

Schynige Platte – romantic rail

Since 1893 the cogwheel train has been transporting nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts from Wilderswil near Interlaken to the Schynige Platte, the starting point of beautiful hiking tours and mountain trails. Next to the mountain station you will find the Alpine Garden, which specializes in local flora.

Already the journey with a nostalgic cog railway and open carriages is an adventure in itself - and the higher you climb, the better the breath-taking views of the mountains that open up all around you.

Mont Pèlerin – views over the lake

Passing through vineyards, orchards and forests, the funicular railway is the most comfortable means of reaching Mont-Pèlerin for an excursion. Vevey is situated on the railway route from Geneva/Lausanne into the Valais. The valley station of the Pèlerin funicular can be reached in 15 minutes on foot from Vevey train station.

Views from 700 meters above Lake Geneva following a funicular rail ride from Vevey via the Chardonne vineyards, then on foot and with the lift up the television tower.
