- Show on map
Located at Lauchernalp, the Panoramic Alpine Trail is the highest winter hiking trail in Europe (3,111 - 3,020m above sea level). Starting from the upper Gletscherbahn gondola mountain station, the trail leads to a unique viewpoint overlooking more than 40 4,000m peaks. The route begins behind the upper Gletscherbahn gondola mountain station, where a wide easy track leads down to the viewpoint, parallel to the ski slope. Two panorama boards erected on a small plateau overlooking the precipice describe the surrounding peaks. Return the way you came, then take the gondola and then the three-seater chair lift to Stafel. From here you can walk down or take the six-seater chairlift back to the Lauchernalp mountain station.
