Brienzer Rothorn – steam mountain

Mountains – A nostalgic rack railroad driven by steam engines leads up the Brienz Rothorn, which was even in the 19th century one of the most popular vantage points for views in the Bernese Oberland. The train takes about one hour to climb the 1,678 meters difference in height.

Puffing we head on and up in Brienz, while ascending in a second climb from Sörenberg. On the south side with steam since 1892, and aboard large cabins on the mountain railway from the north.

Excursions – Lugano's Sugarloaf Mountain, Monte San Salvatore: one reaches its peak comfortably via cable car, or one can take the most challenging fixed rope trail in Switzerland to the peak. There is a magnificent panoramic view at 912 meters above sea level.

Lugano’s home mountain and pinnacle of enjoyment - that’s San Salvatore! The striking mountain south of the town boasts 360° views over the lake and environs, far south and to the high Alps in the west.
