Best Views at Grosser Mythen, Lucerne

This one is extraordinary. Once reaching the top of the mountain called Grosser Mythen, you will be awarded with one of the best viewpoints you will ever experience. No joke! You have a view in all directions and as far as we remember, it is possible to spot 7 lakes from the top. Amazing! Very recommendable is to climb the mountain in the early morning hours to experience the sunrise.

Best Views at Monte Bre, Lugano

Another magnificent view can be enjoyed in the Italian part of Switzerland – more specific, at Montre Bre in Lugano! Our hike started in Gandria (a village, only 15 min drive from Lugano) and it took us about 1 h and 30 minutes to reach the top. With its panoramic view over the Lugano lake, this place is jaw-dropping, indeed! As for many Swiss mountains, there is a chance to take the cable car from the centre of Lugano.

Best Views at Stoos, Lucerne

Not to be missed is the viewpoint called Stoos! The views over the Lucerne lake are magnificent, something we won’t forget for a lifetime. To make the trip even more exciting, consider going on a snowshoeing trip with the aim to reach the top of the mountain.

Best Views at Uetliberg, Zurich

If flying into Zurich, don’t skip the half-day trip to Uetliberg! There might be a good chance that Uetliberg is above the clouds if you you walk down the streets in a foggy Zurich. However, by clear skies, the views over Zurich and the Zurich lake from Uetliberg are breathtaking!

Best Views at Gurten, Bern

If wandering around the historical town Bern, make sure to ascend to the nearby mountain called Gurten. It provides nice panoramic views over the city and the surrounding hills. There is a restaurant at the top, offering delicious traditional Rรถsti (a typical Swiss food, made out of potatoes). Make sure you give it a try! In order to reach the top, we recommend to go for the short and quite easy walk. Another option is of course to take the funicular.
