Funicular rail or by bus, then the Design-Cableway and scenic chairlifts transport guests 1450 meters above the Lago Maggiore lake to Cimetta. Panorama boards shed light on the mountains near and far and geological facts. And by the mid Cardada station, an attractive architectonic viewing platform elegantly reigns above the tree tops.

Reflexology path, Nordic walking trail, playful walks for children, and signposted mountain-bike routes complete the scenic Cardada/Cimetta offer. Diverse restaurants with Ticino specialities and possible accommodation from simple to stylish and romantic.
