Mountains in Switzerland

With alpine mountain peaks spread throughout most of its territory, Switzerland is a destination where travelers find easy access to the most scenic mountain peaks. Many of these peaks are snow capped all year around and only a few visitors can resist its beauty. Here are some of the highlights:

Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau
Eiger, SwitzerlandPerhaps the most famous of mountains in Switzerland, the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountain rates towers over the beautiful Bernese Oberland. It is a full-day excursion to get up to the visitors station on the Joch. Snow and ice 100% guaranteed! The Sphinx observation hall, impressive Ice Palace and hiking plateau - these are the year-round attractions. Summer attractions include a ski lift, husky-drawn sledging and adventure activities.

Schilthorn
Schilthorn, SwitzerlandThe Schilthorn above Mürren provides travelers with the most spectacular 360° panorama in the Alps! Dine and wine in the world's first revolving restaurant at an altitude of nearly 9,800 feet (3,000 m) above sea level. Impressive views embrace some 200 snow-capped peaks, ranging from the Bernese Alps to Mont Blanc in France and Germany's Black Forest.

Titlis
Titlis, SwitzerlandTo get up on mount Titlis in Engelberg, you will board a rotating cable-car which takes tourists all the way up to Klein Titlis (9,930 ft. / 3,028 m). This was the first revolving aerial cable-car in the world and it takes you to "heaven". The Rotair cable-car operates all year long and to spend an entire day is recommended.

Pilatus
Pilatus, SwitzerlandMount Pilatus is Lucerne's landmark! Two cable cars make the north side of the mountain accessible and on the south flank the world's steepest cogwheel railway climbs gradients of 48% on its way to the peak. During the summer, the "Golden Round Trip" - a popular route for tourists - involves taking a boat from Lucerne across Lake Lucerne to Alpnachstad, going up on the cogwheel railway, coming down on the aerial cableways and panorama gondolas, and taking a bus back to Lucerne.

Rigi
Rigi, SwitzerlandTake the steamboat from Lucerne to Vitznau and then the cogwheel train up to "Rigi-Kulm" from where you have a marvelous panoramic view. Take a ride back to Rigi-Kaltbad and from there the cable car to Weggis where you back to Lucerne by boat. Or you go down to Goldau with the cable car and take the train back to Lucerne.

Säntis
Santis, SwitzerlandThe Säntis is a famous mountain in Eastern Switzerland and part of the Alpstein sub-range of the Appenzell Alps. I can be reached by an aerial tramway from Schwägalp and provides with a fantastic view of the Swiss Alps and into Germany and Austria.

Les Diablerets
Les Diablerets, SwitzerlandThis group of peaks are lined around some smaller glaciers. The ride on Glacier 3000, an aerial cableway strung from its station at Col du Pillon outside the resort village to a shelf at Scex-Rouge, is a thrill and well worth the steep fare. Vistas of peaks, alpine meadows, and clusters of sloping-roof farmhouses extend to Lac Léman and the Jura mountains. The 20-minute ascent is done in two segments, ending at the metallic, jewel box-shaped restaurant designed by world-famous architect Mario Botta.
