Enjoy a brief orientation drive, where your guide points out the main attractions of this charming town like the famous Chapel Bridge, the Town Hall, the picturesque Jesuit Church or the impressive Concert and Congress Hall (KKL).

Pass By: Stanserhorn-Bahn, Stansstaderstrasse 19, 6370 Stans, Switzerland

Then, continue by coach to Stans, a town surrounded by orchards. You’ll delight in an unforgettable ride through flowering meadows to the valley station of the vintage funicular railway, recently restored but built in 1893.
Your guide will drop you off here and provide you with all the necessary information and schedules so that you are well prepared to spend your afternoon at Mt. Stanserhorn independently.

Take the CabriO – the world’s first open-top aerial cable car – to the summit of Mt Stanserhorn, rising 6,230 feet (1,900 meters) above sea level. During the 25-minute ride, relish the remarkable view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola as you ascend. Take in the panorama from the mountaintop as you look down at more than 10 lakes and 62 miles (100 km) of the Swiss Alps mountain range.
Next, go on a short hike to Stanserhorn’s peak and visit the Marmot Park for a chance to watch the animals in their natural habitat. Opt for a typical Swiss meal (own expense) in the Rondorama, a revolving restaurant with fabulous views.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Lucerne, Lucerne

After returning to Stans, take the public train back to Lucerne for some additional free time in the charming city.
