Ride on the Brienzer Rothorn steam train in late October
The only cog-railway in Switzerland that runs daily with steam locomotives. A steam experience not to be missed. Best view on the turquoise Lake Brienz and of more than 600 peaks.
Golden Pass panoramic train near Gstaad
A train never connects one point to another by the shortest route. It follows the curves, it winds its way between lakes, and around mountains. Between Montreux and Zweisimmen, passing through Gstaad, its task is particularly complicated. This is the price to pay for making this trip, or rather this adventure, so spectacular and sumptuous. You’ll feel excitement all the way. No wonder tourists from all over the world take their seats in the panoramic or Belle Epoque carriages.
On the way up to the Schynige Platte
Near Interlaken at the small town of Wilderswil, this cog railway brings you to the Schynige Platte. A true nature paradise with great hiking possibilities, the alpine flower garden and of course the famous panorama with Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau.
Descent of the cows from the Swiss Alps
A majority of the cows and goats spend the summer high up in the Alps. In September they descent back to the valley. It is an old tradition to decorate the cows and the locals come to see them passing by. The cow bells are heard from far.
