If you are looking for an adrenaline rush mixed with breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, this railway is for you. With an inclination of up to 106%, this funicular is the steepest of its kind in Europe. The rail was originally built to transport heavy construction materials for the Gelmer dam. It is now currently open for adventure-seeking hikers and tourists looking for some of the most amazing views you can get from the Swiss Alps. In a blink, the funicular makes its way to the Gelmer valley 1,860 meters above sea level. Once at the top, a walk around the turquoise colored lake is a must, and you can even hike up to the Gelmer hut for some more spectacular lookouts. If Switzerland isn’t already on your travel bucket list, fix that. And then add this awesome day to your Switzerland itinerary!
