Suggest Best Alp Views Locations ??

Hello all,

Driving on the road from Zurich to Geneva this weekend, near Bern, saw the most phenomenal, spectacular view of the alps.

We guessed this general West Bern-Bern-Emmental area is probably the region where one can see the greatest expanse of the Swiss alps from one far one end to the other from the ground or a hilltop.

It seems that views of the alps from afar is best on a sunny day in Spring because it's getting warmer and sunnier but there is still more snow on peaks which makes them stand out more against the sky.


1) Is this true, that this is probably the general location where one can see the greatest length of the alps from the ground or an easy accessible hilltop?

2) Anyone have an easy walk, ridge walk or hilltop that is very easy to reach in that region that they suggest for the best views?

3) People want to add to a more general list of "Easily Accessible Great Swiss Views" to share? (see my starter list below)

Thanks for suggestions,

My other "Easily Accessible Special Swiss Views" to kick things off are:

Cable Car coming down from Mannlichen looking down Lauterbrunnen Valley (or just walking down Lauterbrunnen Valley Floor)

Muottas Muragl Cafe, top of cable car, looking down Engadine Valley

Pizol, looking down Rhine Valley towards Liechtenstein

Anywhere high along Lac Leman looking across at lake and Mont Blanc Mountains

Edge of Nendaz, looking down Valais Valley and mountains across
