It was a very great and worth-it experience. Our guide was Fatima, who provided a very good overview of almost all the things we passed on our way.

From Zürich to Stans

A day trip to Mount Stanserhorn promises unforgettable adventure, seamlessly transitioning you from the comfort of an AC coach to the rustic charm of a public train. Your journey begins from Zürich with a picturesque drive through the medieval city of Lucerne, accompanied by the soothing sight of its tranquil lake.

As you approach Stans by train, your anticipation grows, and soon you find yourself on a vintage funicular, slowly ascending through alpine meadows.

The Journey Upwards

The scenery is nothing short of magical, with wildflowers in full bloom, and the crisp mountain air invigorates your senses. But the real highlight of your trip awaits you at Kälti, where you will board the CabriO cable car. As you ascend to the Stanserhorn's peak on its open-roofed upper deck, a 360-degree panoramic view of the Swiss Alps unfolds before you.

It's a breathtaking spectacle, with 10 glistening lakes sprawled over 100 kilometers of rugged mountain ranges. Once at the summit, embark on a short, ecologically immersive trek to Eagle's Peak surrounded by the pristine natural beauty of the Alps.
