Full description
First, take the train to Stans on the southern side of Lake Lucerne, a ride which will take roughly 20 minutes, then make a time-jump ride on a wooden vintage funicular from the 19th century right before getting to the top-modern CabriO cable car. Most of you have probably experienced what a regular cable car feels like. The Stanserhorn mountain though has made it more exciting for its guests. The world’s first convertible-style cable car, the Stanserhorn CabriO, is where the fun begins. Wander from the summit down to the plateau at 1200 to 1600 meters above sea level in the Engelberg valley through the Geo-Trail towards the holiday destination of Wirzwerli where you will take a gondola ride down to the station. A 10 minute stroll will lead you to the train station and back to Luzern. Before you begin the hike, you’ll first be delighted with flowering meadows; stunning views over a hundred kilometers of alpine peaks, the city of Lucerne in the distance and also Lucerne’s own Mount Pilatus rising 2,128 meters into the sky; the lower sprawl of the Bürgenstock and the characteristic double peak of the Mythen among an endless scenery of lakes and mountain meadows. Marvel at the sights in an unforgettable ride through the valley, you can have a panoramic and completely unobstructed view while you float under the open sky with pristine mountain air blowing through your fluttering hair and no ropes above your head – as these are placed on the side of the carriage. The unimpaired view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola is truly memorable.
