The Reigoldswil-Wasserfallen cable car

A cable car to fun: the Wasserfallenbahn at Reigoldswil

The only cableway in northwestern Switzerland swings you up to the "Balcony of Basel". From an altitude of over 900 metres above sea level, the breathtaking Jura landscape lies spread out before you, with a magnificent view of the Alps, the Vosges and the Black Forest. Whether you're out for a brief stroll, an easy circuit or an extended hike through the foothills, you'll find sun terraces offering food and drinks and secluded picnic spots in every direction.

If you prefer to move a little faster you can rent a miniscooter complete with free helmet at the upper station and zoom down marked forest trails for a 400-metre descent in altitude into the valley (age 12 and upwards).

When there's snow on the ground, you can explore the rolling hills of the Passwang district on snowshoes. The toboggan trail back down to the village of Reigoldswil is a wild ride.
