Beautiful & Unforgettable Day Hikes in Switzerland - Insider Tips

Day hikes in Switzerland are simply a MUST DO activity! Especially, when you are travelling to the land of cheese during spring, summer or autumn. In order to choose from one from the most spectacular hikes out there, we prepared a list of our favourites.

Here are our suggestions:

Wildspitz, Zug

In about 1h and 45 min from the Obhäg Kapelle you can reach the scenic hill called Wildspitz in Zug. The hike is semi-difficult and is known for its gorgeous views along the trail and from the top. We'd say definitely one of the coolest viewpoints we've ever been.

Niederbauen Chulm, Lucerne

With its height of 1923 m, the Niederbauen Chulm mountain offers one the most spectacular panoramic views over the Lake Lucerne. The easiest way is to take the Seelisberg cable car to the Alp Waid and then hike about 1 h and 10 min to the top of this lovely mountain. Go for it!

Monte Bre, Ticino

The view from Monte Bre (925 m) is one of the most beautiful ones in the region of Ticino, Switzerland (at least for us!), as listed here. We started the hike from our hotel in Gandria and climbed to the top of it. However, there is also a cable car, taking you to this viewpoint in case you're not in the hiking mood.

Gelmer Lake, Bernese Oberland

The Gelmer Lake is a mountain dam that fascinated me the most of all. Reason? It's colour - just surreal . A good reason to go back one day. There is a spectacular funicular, which you can use to go to the top, but if you prefer to hike (as we did), you can read more about it here.

Aescher

Another amazing hike with a length of 2 hours and 10 min! Take the cable car to the Ebenalp station and proceed to the famous wooden chalet (see the photo below). From there, descend to the Seealpsee - one of the stunning mountain lakes in the Swiss Alps. Take as many photos as you want, get a coffee at the restaurant or even rent out a boat and go for a ride. Once fully enjoyed the lake, descend to the Wasserauen station, where you most probably left your car from the beginning.

Pilatus

Pilatus (2128 m) is probably the most famous mountain in Switzerland. Very touristic, I know, but still, it shouldn't be ignored due to its stunning landscape. If you want to save some money and ignore the cable car, try to climb to the mountain from the bottom or at least from the middle station. In our eyes, Pilatus offers top panoramic views in Switzerland, as mentioned here.

Oeschinen Lake

A turquoise lake in the middle of the Swiss mountains. Oh yes, this will be your award at the end of this relatively easy hike. If you want to know more about the possible hiking trails, you can find all the details here.

Prodalp

While Jerry found his joy mountainbiking on this mountain, I started at the Tannenheim station and went for the 45 m hike to the top of the Prodalp (1576 m). That doesn't mean your journey should stop here too. From there, you can go even higher and ascend to the lovely Prodkamm (1939 m) and soak up the views of the Walen Lake.

Stoos - Fronalpstock

This hike is all about the VIEW. It's about a 2 hours walk from the cable car station to the top, and it can be steep from time to time. Along the way, the view is simply fantastic, as you can see in this blog post. The picture below tells it all - we haven't done the hike in the summer. Instead, we went snowshoeing to the top in the middle of the winter. Recommendable!

Uetliberg

If you're looking for some nature when exploring Zurich, hiking to the Uetliberg with its height of 870 m is a nice option. The hike from the Feldermoos parking will take you about 45 min. But hey, it wouldn't be Switzerland, if there was no cable car or funicular taking you to the top of the hill - you can even take the funicular from the Zurich Main Station. Once at the top, you will have a great view over the city and the Zurich lake. Worth it!

Grosser Mythen

Wanna see more than one lake from above? Ascending to the Grosser Mythen will give you this great opportunity! To achieve its height of 1898 m, you can start your hike from the bottom at the Brunni parking, which will take you ca. 2 h and 30 min. If you take the cable car to the Holzegg station, it's about an 1 hour and 30 min hike -> but quite a steep one. Don't panic, go slow and once above, you will say, it was worth every sweat drop.

Rigi Scheidegg - Rigi Kulm

Rigi - another mountain to climb, located along the world-famous Lake Lucerne. Ascend to the cable car station called Rigi Scheidegg. In 2 h 35 min the easy hike will take you to the lovely Rigi Kulm. Along the hiking trail you will enjoy an amazing landscape, as you can see below.

Hörnlihütte, Arosa

Oh, why not going for this hike? Along the trail you will spot 3 incredibly scenic mountains lakes: Schwellisee, Urdensee and Älplisee. We listed the latter as one of the most beautiful lakes in Switzerland - check out the blog post and the hiking trail description here.

    I want to say a big thanks to Dr. Okosisi for helping me to win the lottery. I won ($1,000,000.00)

    My heart was filled with Joy and happiness when I won the lottery. All thanks goes to Dr Okosisi for his good work he did for me that made me win the lottery. It has been hard for me to earn a living over the years of hard labor and suffering. I always pray to God to help me find a way to hit the lottery, because that was all I put my hope on. I always play the lottery daily, buy different lottery tickets, pay for online tips and others, but all was in vain, no good result, until one day I found this great man Dr Okosisi. On the internet, he is a magic voodoo Doctor, who helps to cast the lottery spell, as was described in the article. I contacted him too because I want to hit the lottery. Dr. Okosis helped me to cast the spell, and behold I won ONE MILLION DOLLARS. Truly you are the best and your spell is genuine and costs no harm. I got my bills paid and my debt cleared. I am making this known to every one of you who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery with a better price, this is the real contact we all have been searching for.

    When I heard about the POWERFUL SPELL CASTER called Dr Kumar who is giving out the lottery numbers, I was very happy and quickly contacted him for Lottery numbers. I was a poor man and I had no money for food and bills. I was so broke and I needed money urgently. So I contacted the spell caster for the lottery numbers to make me win the lottery. I did all that he told me and I sent him the necessary details. After 24hrs, he finished the spell and he asked me if i was ready to win the mega million and i replied yes am ready and so he sent me the numbers for me to play the Lottery. I was so surprised and shocked when all the numbers strike and I won the Powerball lottery. I almost fainted, I have never won so much money in my lifetime before. I am so happy and I want to say Thank you Dr Kumar for changing my life from poverty to wealth. You can contact Dr Kumar for your lottery numbers on email: spellcasttemple@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2347051705853. He is the only answer to make you win the lottery, Online tips can't make you win but Dr Kumar lottery numbers will make you a millionaire

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
