A wonderful combination of an old vintage funicular train which dates back to 1893 and the world's first and still only CabriO cable car. A splendid view onto a chain of 100 kilometers of the Swiss Alps and 10 Swiss lakes. Charming Rangers are leading the way around the summit trail. Culinary delights you will experience in the revolving restaurant.

Visit: CabriO Stanserhorn-Bahn, Stansstaderstrasse 19, Stans 6370 Switzerland

Only 15 Minutes away from Lucerne you find Mt. Stanserhorn. Easy to reach by car or train.

Once you've reached Stans, you find the valley station right in the middle of the village Stans - the capitol of the canton of Nidwalden.

The journey to Mt. Stanserhorn starts with the old vintage funicular train which dates back to 1893. The ride along farm sites, meadows and forest takes 8 minutes. In the middle station you change onto the CabriO cable car. The world's first and still world's only aerial cable car with an open top. An enjoyable 7 minute ride to the top of Mt. Stanserhorn. A nice breeze on your face and open sky above you.

A view onto a chain of 100 kilometers of the Swiss Alps and 10 Swiss lakes awaits you walking out the mountain station. Let the Stanserhorn Ranger explain the mountain panorama to you, let him tell you about the history of Mt Stanserhorn and let him show you the most beautiful flowers blooming on Mt Stanserhorn. After walking the 30 minutes summit trail (from the very peak you have a 360° view) you will sure feel hungry or thirsty. Our self-catering restaurant Rondorama will fullfill your culinary desires. You simply take a seat and let the mountains revolve around you - it's a revolving restaurant which revolves in 45 minutes.

Mt Stanserhorn is open for evening rides on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night starting May thru November.

Looking forward to see you soon on Mt Stanserhorn.

The trip to stanserhorn was the hidden gem of our recent trip to Switzerland...... The ride up the Cabrio car and the small train was simply stunning ..., And the views from the top were sensational......and I feel it's an underrated place in Lucerne and needs to be publicised more ......

Getting to the top of Mt Stanserhorn involves a 19th century cog railroad and a 21st century cable car. The rail ride provides close up views of charming houses, cows and pastureland. The cable car provides stunning view of the alpine scenery and vistas of the valleys. The optional open air ride on top of the car was a unique experience—less scary than expected. At the mountain top, there are some moderate trails and a lovely cafeteria style restaurant with a revolving platform and stellar views.

This is one ride you dont want to miss. Differently take your ride up the mountain by way of the open top deck of the Cabrio. The views are amazing, so much fun. There are some noce walking areas once you are on top. This is the worlds first open air cable car. It is totally safe and a once in a life time trip.

We began in Stans and rode a wooden funicular halfway up the mountain before changing to a modern CabriO double decker cable car; we enjoyed a ride on the roofless upper deck. When we exited the cable car, we enjoyed wonderful views in all directions. Then we had a short, but steep climb to the summit. We took time to catch our breath and take loads of pictures before heading down a trail and back to the restaurant. After a restroom and lunch break, we boarded the cable car again to travel down the mountain. This was a wonderful excursion.
