Already the first glimpse of the summit station designed by architect Mario Botta is spectacular. Immediately, a stunning panorama of no fewer than 24 snow-capped 4,000-metre giants reveals itself: Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Matterhorn, Grand Combin and even Mont Blanc in the distance.
Gstaad – connecting to the GoldenPass scenic route.
With the new GoldenPass Express, visitors benefit from a direct train connection from Montreux (1 h 30 min) or Interlaken (1 h 35 min) to Gstaad. From there, a PostBus takes them to the cableway valley station of the Glacier 3000 in only 30 minutes. So, even the journey there turns into a great experience.
