View from the observation deck of the Klein Matterhorn, at 3883 metres above sea level

This is a list of mountains of Switzerland above 800 metres whose summits are accessible by public transport. This list includes mountains with a topographic prominence of at least 30 metres[1] that have a station above the height of their key col and within 120 metres (height difference) from the summit. The station can be reached by cable car, funicular, railway or bus. This list notably includes the Klein Matterhorn and the Säntis, respectively the highest[2] and the most prominent[3] peaks of Europe with public transport access. It also includes the Chasseral, the most isolated summit of the country accessible to pedestrians.

This list does not include ski lifts. For a list of ski areas, see List of ski areas and resorts in Switzerland. For a general list of mountains, see List of mountains of Switzerland.
