Homepage > Monte Generoso Emotions at 1704 m
Since 1890, the indefatigable rack and pinion train has set off from Capolago and has climbed the slopes of Monte Generoso, whisking passages up to a height of 1704 m. Once they alight, passengers are welcomed by the “Stone Flower” designed by Switzerland’s starchitect, Mario Botta. The petals of this architectural marvel which blossomed in 2017 on the summit’s rocky spur include two restaurants and a conference room providing a window onto a sublime 360° panorama. Contemplate outer space using the astronomical observatory’s telescope and the adventure becomes all the more wondrous.
