This place is wonderful with one of the best views in Switzerland period, a full 360 degrees! The Restaurant offers great typical and authentic food oh high quality. The Gondola with open top called Cabrio is also very unique.

The view from most cable cars are what makes the trip interesting but Stanserhorn take it to a whole new level - like riding the London double decker buses without a roof top - you get a fantastic view and feeling. Stanserhorn is also worth a visit with it view to other mountains. I suggest you walk up and take... More

This cable car is something else. You can stand in the top section which is open. The views when you get to the cable car station at the top are awesome as you are virtually in the clouds. We had lunch here and it was very reasonable.

This is definitely one way to see the beautiful countryside from way up. Enjoying the wind in our faces and the perfect view of the countryside below. We traveled through the snow and fog on our way to the top. It was very interesting to see some guests from New Zealand who got to see snow for the first time.... More

This was a fantastic experience, very well organised, efficient trip to the top - hard to decide which was the best part - the 100 year old furnicular and then sleek Cabrio cable car trip or the stunning scenery from the top! Do check the weather first, we couldn't see the mountain top from Lucerne but the webcam showed summit... More

Your journey starts with a trip on the wooden funicular which takes you to the Cabrio cable car station. You can stay indoors or stand outside which gives you the opportunity to take in the views or in our case travel through the clouds! Our meal in the revolving Restaurant was delicious and the views amazing, especially when we made... More

The Stanserhorn isn't your typical mountain and the CbriO isn't your typical cable car. The CabriO offers an open-roof cable car ride to the top of Stanserhorn, giving you 360 views of Lake Lucerne, Lucerne canton and neighboring cities. The air is crisp and fresh. The view is unforgettable! Once at the top, be sure to climb to the Stanserhorn's... More

Gorgeous views of the mountains. This is a spot that you shouldn't miss! You take a funicular up to the CabriO cable car station. Then, the cable car up to the top. The restaurant up top is very popular. But, there are plenty of places to walk around, if you are interested in hiking down a bit (or all the... More

Another mountain of superlatives in Central Switzerland. For the first part you ascend the mountain on a rickety old wooden funicular (Standseilbahn) and then you switch to the relatively new world-sensation, boasting a spectacular ride on the world's only open-topped "CabriO" gondola, an engineering masterpice that glides on 2 huge metal guide cables mounted on the side of the gondola...
