Cogwheel railway Monte Generoso

For more than 125 years now, the cogwheel railway has been running along a 9 km stretch of the picturesque mountain scenery of the Monte Generoso Natural Park, from Capolago on Lake Lugano to the peak at an altitude of 1704 m.
The steam train from 1890 is the oldest one still in operation in Switzerland and the trains from the 1950s take the passengers back to the times of the Belle Époque.
