Mount Stanserhorn Cable Car, Switzerland

by GO GlobeHopper

The view from Stanserhorn overlooking ten Swiss lakes and 100km of Alpine mountains is quite superb. The 30-minute Stanserhorn circular trail is the best way to enjoy these 360-degree views. These magnificent views can be enjoyed via a sustainable cable car ride with a solar thermal system that generates 11% of the funicular’s power needs. The rest also stems from renewable energy sources.

The circular trail starts at the mountain restaurant and leads down to the Adlerfluh. From there, the views of the Obwalden region and towards Brünig are spectacular. The path is then an easy walk up to the peak with breathtaking panoramic views. The descent passes by Murmeli Park, where you can see the adorable marmots up close.

Your Stanserhorn experience begins as soon as you reach the quaint valley station, from where the 100-year-old funicular takes you over grassy meadows and charming houses and up to the middle station. From there, you can take the new open-air cable car to reach Stanserhorn. The double-decker cable car, dubbed the Cabrio train, has an open-air upper storey.

The Rondorama revolving restaurant, which makes one complete revolution every 43 minutes, will give you 360-degree panoramic views of the Alps.

The highest part of Stanserhorn (1,898 meters above sea level) is where three energy flows meet. The point where you can feel the most energy is near the barbecue area in the southeast.

The circular trail is a low-level walk, is wheelchair accessible, and is open all year round.   the time required is 2 to 4 hours to spend a half-day, and 4 to 8 hours for a full day.  For more information, visit the cable car website HERE.
