I may be alto phobic but that view up above and the cable car ride was definitely worth it. Went around April last year and there were still snow everywhere. The restaurant was ok and a bit pricey but it was indeed a fantastic attraction. Excellent view!

Can't miss this when you're visiting Lugano. Beautiful views with a unique church architecture at the end of the cliff. The cable car ride is also worth the money.

This trip is well worth it. An excellent new cable car system will take you up in to the mountains in a short time. It is also graet for kids. There is a play ground up there, a luge track and easy hiking. There is a super modern church designed by the famous architect Mario Botta which is quite interesting.... More

It got lots of activities for kids. Coaster Bob and Flying Fox were thrilling. We did not have enough time to do the Adventure Park or Paraglider so I cannot comment. Anyway, a must do for family with kids. You can spend at least half day here or whole day if you want to do everything available there.

Don't know what to do? Well, this area has a lot of entertainment for all ages... Waterpark, forest aerial adventure park, children playground, Alpine paths, zip-line, bob run... Is better to have an idea of what want to do before approaching the aerial tram ticket booth since they have combo prices starting the basic round-trip ticket (CHF 23.00); one-way with... More

The idea really was just to go there, to go on the adventure trail! I wanted my son to experience what its like to be up in the treetops, walking along narrow planks, and wires (whilst being securely clipped on). It starts off with a little video introduction then followed by a mini practical run through explaining the various clipping,... More

Went on a day that turned out to be some religious holiday, and the place was packed with families. Took away half the fun of a place that has many possibilities. The walks and the hikes are the highlight to challenge all types, or easy on the body. The restaurant is surprisingly friendly for vegetarians. There are better hikes from... More
