List of Swiss cantons by elevation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Map all coordinates using: OpenStreetMap 
Download coordinates as: KML · GPX

The following list is a comparison of elevation absolutes in Switzerland. Data includes interval measures of highest and lowest elevation for all 26 cantons, with coordinates of the highest. Location names, mean elevation, and the numeric differences between high and low elevations are also provided.

Most of the 26 canton high points are located in the Swiss Alps. Others (with lower altitudes), are located in the Jura Mountains. The 14 lower summits (up to the Säntis) are within the hiking trail network. The ascent of the 11 higher summits involves rock climbing or glacier touring.

Canton high points are shown as red dots. Low points as expressed with green dots, except in cantons whose lowest elevation are lakes.
