Description 

Summary

Come for the thrill, stay for the views at Mount Stanserhorn. Your ride in the world's first open top double decker cable car is surely unforgettable, but there's more to Stanserhorn than meets the eye.

The panoramic Stanserhorn mountain is just a short 20-minute train ride away from Lucerne. It can also be reached through a combination rail trip and boat cruise from Lucerne to Hergiswil. The combined journey takes you first on a local boat or a paddle steamer(depending on schedule) to Hergiswil from where a rail transfer connects to Stans. From the railway station in Stans you'll take an easy 5-minute walk to Stanserhorn-Bahn where you'll board a vintage funicular dating from 1893 taking you to Kalti. Then you'll ride the CabriO, the world's first roofless cable car whisking you up 1,850m above sea level. Feel the wind blowing through your hair as you gaze upon blue skies and glistening lakes, valleys, and peaks. Nature feels so much closer in the CabriO. The open upper deck and large glass front are truly breath-taking and spectacular.

In the top a stunning flower reserve, Marmot Park, as well as a revolving restaurant await your visit. As you take in the blissful panorama, allow the friendly ‘Stanserhorn Rangers’ to explain everything about Stanserhorn and direct you to the best features of the mountain. Gently push further into the summit with a gentle circular hiking trail (approx. 30 min) where you'll get rewarded with amazing vistas of ten Swiss lakes and 100 kilometers of pure Alpine greatness.
