Enjoy a breathtaking 360° view on the highest point of Gersau.

On the command bridge of the Arche, you can enjoy a unique 360-degree panoramic view. The Rigi-Scheidegg Ark conveys the sublime feeling of an oasis high above the sea of fog, where the sun shines longest and the high water never reaches.

The view stretches from the Black Forest to the Grisons mountains, to the Säntis and the Bernese Alps with the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.
