Within just 15 minutes, you will get whisked from the valley floor to 3k altitudes – no switching required. At the top, you will surely notice the summit station designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. The various look-out points at Glacier 3000 offer panoramic views of two dozen snow-capped peaks above 4000 meters of altitude: Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, the Matterhorn, Grand Combin, and even Mont Blanc in the far distance.

Just outside the cable car station is the Peak Walk by Tissot, the world’s first suspension footbridge spanning two summits. Do you have the courage to walk across for bragging rights? Next, claim a seat on the Alpine Coaster and slide down an outdoor track. At the bottom, another highlight awaits: sledge dogs waiting to give you a ride across the glacier…

As you can tell, Glacier 3000 offers a fun and memorable excursion to the Swiss Alps. It is easy to reach for anyone, especially those staying in nearby places such as Gstaad or Montreux. Regular bus services ensure that you will smoothly get to the top and back to your home base.
