Excursions Switzerland: Stanserhorn

Since 1893, visitors to the Stanserhorn have been riding in the wooden wagons of the vintage funicular to the intermediate station Kälti, where they continue their ride up the Stanserhorn by transferring to the modern CabriO Cable Car. The double-decker cable car has two cabins and an open upper deck and is an experience for all senses, for you enjoy not only the panoramic view, but also the wind in your hair and the pristine mountain air. The two cabins move on side-mounted support cables for a truly unlimited panoramic view, moving almost noiselessly from 711 meters above sea level to the 1850-meter high Stanserhorn.

The most convenient spots to enjoy the panorama are in the revolving restaurant or on the viewing platform. The Stanserhorn is also home to many different activities, including picturesque hiking paths through the Flower Reserve or the Marmot Park, with local rangers who recommend viewpoints and point out landmarks from the peak. An ideal summer mountain, the Stanserhorn is the local mountain of Delta Club Stans, the largest and oldest kite flying club in Switzerland - the views over the kites flying across the skies is unmissable on sunny weekends.
