4. Harder Kulm

A restaurant and bar that attracts tourists, locals and day trippers for their outstanding view. Check out the viewing platform – but the best fun is sitting here sipping on a cold beer with friends.

6. Mt Pilatus

The place to come by either cable car, or if you are feeling seriously adventurous and skilled enough, to climb it on foot. Looks nice covered in snow but really shines as an outstanding place during the warm summer months.

7. Matterhorn mountain

One of the most distinctive and highest peaks in Europe coming in at just over 4400m. You’ll also probably recognise its famous unique shape as the branding on Toblerone chocolate…
