Took the short walk from the parking lot, a pleasant, not strenuous climb. A majestic view, all the way to Lombardy. An ideal way to get your bearings, and plan additional walks.

If you are visiting Lugano, this place should be at the top of your list. It offers an amazing view of Lugano. Additionally, it has a open restaurant with excellent views and it within the swiss price average. Additionally, I would recommend to check the weather forecast before going, make sure the sky will be clear to enjoy the views.

We took the funicular to the peak and walked around to see the view of Lake Lugano, the Alps, and the town. It's so pretty and soothing to be up there looking down. Definitely must see!

We took the tram to the top, and at 25 Euro per person, I found that to be a bit much. There is no doubt that the views at the top are absolutely beautiful. You can see for miles and miles and miles. There are 2 restaurants at the top, but I did not eat at them as I was... More

Nice ride with funicular and breathtaking views from the top. Short walks, a little playground and a scenic outdoor and indoor restaurant are available. Overall very nice if it wasn't for the high price of the ride (75 euro for family of 4 return tickets)
