Monte Generoso reopens for the new season!

On Saturday, 6th of April 2019 the cogwheel train for the Monte Generoso starts again its journey up the mountain for the new season.

The cog railway for Monte Generoso, for over 125 years in Capolago, is just a few steps away from Albergo Ristorante Svizzero!
