Leysin, Switzerland

The Revolving Restaurant Offers Commanding Views of the Mountains

The Revolving Restaurant Offers Commanding Views of the Mountains It is not only the altitude of Leysin or its close proximity to the glacier range at Diablerets which makes this a "must" for any skiing visit to Switzerland, it is also the charm of the resort and the vastness of terrain.

A gondola, 9 chairlifts and 6 other lifts serve numerous slopes which are probably best suited for intermediate and beginners. There are some challenging slopes for the more advanced enthusiast.

Leysin enjoys exceptional exposure to sunshine so a good tan is usually assured. As for views, Leysin enjoys one of only three revolving restaurants in the whole of Switzerland and from the summit of Kuklos you enjoy a unique 360 degree panorama which will take in the Alps from the Eiger to Mont Blanc. For parents, their kids (up to the age of 9 years) can have FREE ski passes for the 2005-06 winter.

When evening comes and the skiers come down from the slopes, the village awakes and the taste buds will be working overtime to sample of delights of local cuisine, a mecca for the gourmet. For those who prefer strenuous exercise, there are the discos and bars of Leysin which will stay open until the sun comes up the next morning!

Reaching Leysin by car is a journey of around 9/10 hours from Calais via Basel, Lausanne and Montreux on the N1 and N9 motorways. However, you must remember to purchase a Swiss Vignette to allow you to use the Swiss motorway network for the following 12-month period. Flights are usually into Geneva followed by a coach transfer of a couple of hours.
