What to expect

Travel through gorgeous countryside to the charming town of Lucerne. Experience a ride by vintage funicular train followed by the world's first open-top aerial cable car to the peak of Mt. Stanserhorn. Enjoy the spectacular views of the Swiss Alps from the turning restaurant.

You’ll take a scenic coach journey through beautiful countryside via the Albis Pass and along the shores of the Lake of the Four Cantons to Lucerne. On a short introductory city tour you’ll visit the impressive Lion Monument and see the most eminent landmarks like the Chapel Bridge, the Jesuit Church and the Concert and Congress Hall. After that, enjoy the leisure time to stroll Lucerne's beautiful Old Town.

Continue the tour by boarding the vintage funicular train for an unforgettable ride through blooming meadows to the valley station of the World’s first CabriO! The latest masterpiece of Swiss engineering is a unique open-top aerial cable car taking you up to Mt. Stanserhorn (1900m). The unimpaired view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola is truly memorable. On the top of the mountain, a magnificent panorama over ten lakes, 100 kilometers of the alpine mountain range and three countries awaits you. Take the short hike around the peak and visit the Marmot Park to watch cute animals play. Relish a typically Swiss dish in the revolving restaurant Rondorama before you descend back to the city of Stans.

You will get back to Lucerne by public train, and you can enjoy some additional time in this lovely city. Meet your guide in the evening for the coach ride back to Zurich.

Our professional, multilingual guide accompanies the tour from Zurich to Stans and from Lucerne to Zurich. The way up and down Mt. Stanserhorn and the train ride back to Lucerne are unguided. For this part, you receive detailed, written information.
