The Stanserhorn is a mountain in Switzerland, located in the canton of Nidwalden near to the border with Obwalden, with the peak at 1,898 metres above sea level.
Since 1893, the open wood coaches have been travelling sedately up towards Stanserhorn from Stans. Starting at the intermediate station, the aerial cableway with its open roof deck is one of the main attractions. It is a truly amazing feeling to stand up there on the roof of the double-deck panorama cabin and experience up close the passage between the supporting masts, just enjoying the headwind and the magnificent view – without any cables overhead.
On the summit circular walk, visitors meet rangers who are happy to assist with identifying flowers and mountains. Halfway around, the marmots await – as well as the summit restaurant “Rondorama”, which revolves around its axis.
