From the soaring peak of Mt. Titlis to the sweeping valleys of the Jungfrau, a world of Alpine adventure lies within easy reach of Zurich. Here are some ways—hiking, skiing, sightseeing, and more—to immerse yourself in Switzerland’s great outdoors.

Mt. Pilatus — 10 miles (16 km) from Lucerne
Dominating the skyline over Lake Lucerne, 6,982-foot (2,128-meter) Mt. Pilatus comprises a number of rugged peaks and ridges. Travelers can access the scenic peaks via the Pilatus Railway—the world’s steepest cog-wheel train—alongside a series of gondolas and aerial cableways.

Mt. Rigi — 14 miles (22 km) from Lucerne
Fondly nicknamed “Queen of the Mountains,” Mt. Rigi stands 5,899 feet (1,798 meters) above Central Switzerland and is surrounded on all sides by the waters of Lake Lucerne, Lake Lauerz, and Lake Zug. Accessed via Rigi Railways, Europe’s oldest mountain railway, Mt. Rigi offers hiking and paragliding in summer and skiing and sledding in winter.

Mt. Titlis — 25 miles (41 km) from Lucerne
A staggering 10,623 feet (3,238 meters) above sea level, the summit of Mt. Titlis is the highest peak across the Bernese Oberland and Central Switzerland. Full-day excursions from Zurich take in the traditional resort town of Engelberg and offer Alpine vistas as far as the eye can see.

Jungfrau — 52 miles (86 km) from Lucerne
At 13,641 feet (4,158 meters), the mighty Jungfrau is one of the main peaks in the Bernese Alps. But novice skiers take note: The area is home to some of the finest beginner ski terrain in the Swiss Alps. The Alpine region may be known as a winter wonderland, but come summer, travelers can explore the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Jungfraujoch pass by cogwheel train.
