Mount Stanserhorn

Stanserhorn. At 6,000 feet, the height of excursions

The Mount Stanserhorn excursion is one of those amazing adventures that have everything: the old, the new and the timeless. Let's start at the beginning of your journey and take a trip you'll take through time on a vintage 1893 funicular train to the middle station of Kalti. There's nothing like a classic Swiss experience to ground you as you climb alpine tracks before transferring to the world's first double-decker open-air CabriO cable car. This modern marvel with 360° views provides seven minutes of unforgettable panoramic splendor. You then arrive at the top of Mount Stanserhorn where you're greeted by breathtaking beauty. Not to mention views of three countries, ten swiss lakes, and over 62 miles of Alpine mountain range of 6,000 feet above sea level.
