From Zurich: Full-Day Mount Stanserhorn Discovery Tour

2. From Zurich: Full-Day Mount Stanserhorn Discovery Tour

On this full-day tour you will discover the magnificent Mount Stanserhorn in the heart of the stunning Swiss countryside. From Zürich you will be taken on a scenic coach journey to Lucerne through the beautiful countryside via the Albis Pass and along the shores of the Lake Lucerne. On a short tour of the city you will take a photo stop at the Lion Monument or Lake Lucerne (depending on traffic conditions) and see the main sights of this charming town. Enjoy some time at leisure to explore the Old Town before continuing on to Stans, where you will board the vintage funicular train for an unforgettable ride through blooming meadows to the valley station of the world’s first CabriO cable car. This latest master piece of Swiss engineering is a unique open top aerial cable car which takes you up to Mount Stanserhorn (6,230 feet/1,900 meters). The unimpaired view from the roofless upper deck of the gondola is truly memorable. On the top of the mountain, a magnificent panoramic view over ten lakes, 100 kilometers of the Alpine mountain range and three countries awaits you. Take the short hike to the peak and visit the marmot park to watch these cute animals play, and have the option of sampling a typically Swiss dish in the revolving Rondorama restaurant. After descending to Stans, you will take the public train back to Lucerne for some additional time in this lovely city before taking the coach back to Zurich in the evening.

Mt Stanserhorn Photo-Tour with Convertible Style Cable Car

3. Mt Stanserhorn Photo-Tour with Convertible Style Cable Car

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.

The Swiss pass is really helpful when travelling in Switzerland. However, it’s recommended that GetYourGuide provides updates on what’s required. As we were not able to board the glacier express since we didn’t have the Switzerland covid certificate, whereas we were allowed to enter the country, board local trains and dine in restaurants with the certificate issued from our country.

Easy to use. You can use it on trains trams and buses.

Such a breeze to have this pass! Highly Recommended!
