Know More about this tour

Most of us have experienced what a regular cable car feels like. The Stanserhorn mountain though, has made it for its guests more excited. The worlds first convertible-style cable car, the Stanserhorn CabriO, is where the fun begins.
Wander around the summit in a 30 min easy trail. Youll be delighted with stunning views over a hundred kilometers of alpine peaks, the city of Lucerne in the distance and also Lucernes own Mount Pilatus rising 2,128 meters into the sky; the lower sprawl of the Brgenstock 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.
Explore Lucerne city as a local on an optional 2.5 hrs. photo walk tour which includes visits to the Chapel Bridge, Lion Monument, Old City Wall and Lucerne Castle.
