Fresh mountain air, breathtaking vistas and an alpine setting, away from it all, are part and parcel of the panorama terrace of our self-service restaurant "Generoso" that seats 140. Relax, enjoy the special ambience and succumb to our wide range of delicacies or, if you prefer, treat your taste buds to a speciality from our barbecue grill. We also take good care of our youngest guests, with a selection of tasty children’s menus. So whilst you sit back and relax after your meal, your children can have oodles of fun on the adjacent playground.
Monte Generoso Railway
For 125 years now, the rack railway has been running along a picturesque 9 km stretch of mountain in scenary in the Monte Generoso nature park, from Capolago on Lake Lugano to the Monte Generoso summit at 1704 m. altitude. The steam train built in 1890 (the oldest still in use in Switzerland today) and the trains dating back to the 1950s take passengers back in time to the Belle Epoque era.
