Gornergrat Zermatt
#1 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
The cogwheel train ride up to Gornegrat Bahn provides a superb view of the Matterhorn & the surrounding mountain with the snow, sunshine and superb natural mountain scenery.
The cog train provided wonderful vistas on the way up, panoramic views from the top, convenient on and off opportunities all the way down to hike in varied terrain, and easy access to a quaint restaurant for lunch.

Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge Randa
#2 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
The views going up are incredible and you're rewarded with your efforts by crossing the world's longest pedestrian suspension bridge.
The bridge experience was inspiring and exhilarating with a view of the glacier in-between the peaks and a clear sky.
Riffelsee Zermatt
#3 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
There is a train stop very close to Riffelsee but if you have the time, we recommend to go up to the last stop (Gornergrat) and to walk down to Riffelsee (around 25-30 min walk) to enjoy splendid views of the Matt...
Try to be as early as possible if you want to get a clear picture without the photobombing tourists :) you can head straight up to get a very good view of matterhorn mountains and take your toblerone selfie.
Jungfraujoch Sphinx Observatory Jungfraujoch
#4 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
We visited Jungfraujoch on a sunny and clear July morning/early afternoon and the panoramic 360 degree views of Eiger, Jungfrau and the glacier as seen from the Sphinx Observatory are truly spectacular.
Passing through tunnels dug in the mighty Eiger, getting outside on the glacier between Jungfrau and Monch peaks and taking in the view from Sphinx observatory.

Abbaye de Saint-Maurice d'Agaune Saint-Maurice
#5 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
... the treasure preserved through medieval times and hidden during Napoleonic ‘visits’, … and the contemporary stained glass and additions that have enhanced rather than destroyed the spiritual and historic site.
This is for sure the most interesting and beautiful abbaye in Switzerland, freshly completely renewed and rearranged as a full museum with archeological site in which you can easily spend up to 2 hours if taking t...
Furka Pass
#6 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
Amazing scenery and enough places to park safely and enjoy breathtaking views of the Alps.

Church-Fortress of Valere Sion
#12 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
It's a stiff climb to the top of the high knoll where the Château de Valère is perched, but when you look over the stunning view of the Rhone Valley and its surrounding mountains, it will have been worth every step.
The views are amazing and if you took your family here it would be worth it.

#14 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
For a picture-perfect unobstructed view of the Matterhorn, go down the street between the museum and the church to the 2nd bridge and look right.
We stay at Hotel Zermatterhof right next door to this museum with a balcony with gorgeous view of the Matterhorn.
Chateau de Tourbillon Sion
#15 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
Amazing view of the countryside, kind warden and good exercise for my condition, but the way on top, it worth
This hilltop castle is imposing in its own right but the highlight of climbing up to see it is the views back to the Church-Fortress of Valere, directly opposite.
Ice Palace of Jungfraujoch Jungfraujoch
#16 of 99 Sights & Landmarks in Canton of Valais
Nicely cool and slippery enough to remember to walk carefully the whole time, this is a fun and enjoyable attraction as you wander along icy corridors and view the delightful ice sculptures.
The views from the top are truly spectacular and even on the warmest day of the year you will be able to frolic around on the snow.

Grimsel Pass Oberwald

As long the weather cooperates, there is wonderful view over valleys and mountains on both sides.
... which stops 25 minutes on the top of the pass so that you have the time to walk along the beautiful lake on it, visit the nice chapel and enjoy the views especially the one over the two dams and the Hospiz hotel.
