Stansstaderstrasse 19, Stans

The Basics

To get to the CabriO station in Kälti, you first need to ride Oldtimer Funicular Train up the mountainside from Stans—tickets include both journeys. The cable car ride takes around six minutes, so early birds can enjoy plenty of time to explore the peak’s walking trail, chat with a Stanserhorn Ranger, or have a meal at the Revolving Restaurant Rondorama, a mountaintop eatery offering prime views of the region from its revolving dining platform.

Day Trip to Lucerne and Mount Stanserhorn Including CabriO Cable Car Ride
This experience exceeded my expectations! I traveled alone and loved being with a small group. We were given a perfect amount of time to explore Lucerne on our own and our travel guide did an excellent job of keeping the group moving along in a timely manner. The views from the top of the mountain were incredible.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Book your tickets in advance to avoid on-the-day disappointment, as Stanserhorn is popular.

  • The cable car’s lower deck is fully accessible for wheelchair users.

  • One-way tickets are available for purchase, though the hiking route is only recommended for experienced mountaineers.

When to Get There

High season offers expansive late spring and summer vistas. Travellers looking for a quieter Alpine experience should visit in April, when the crowds are smaller. Early birds can take advantage of Good Morning tickets, which provide discounted access, minimized wait times, and preferential seating in the first hour of opening. All mountain services, including the CapriO cable car, close over winter and reopen in spring.
