Mt. Stanserhorn CabriO Cable Car

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.

Skip the Line: CabriO Mt Stanserhorn Railway Ticket
We took the local train to Stans and it was a 5 minute walk to the funicular at the base of the mountain. We then transferred to the enclosed gondola for the rest of the trip up the mountain......very easy and very nice!!

Day Trip to Lucerne and Mount Stanserhorn Including CabriO Cable Car Ride
It was a good pick: Lucerne/Stasenhorn. We went around with the group until we were dropped off at the Stasenhorn funicular stn by the guide. The open-top cable car ride after the funicular was amazing! And the solo train ride going back to Lucerne to meet up with the group for the ride back home after several hours made the trip better. Great experiences.

Day Trip to Lucerne and Mount Stanserhorn Including CabriO Cable Car Ride
A lot to see in one day but worth it. You have to take a train by yourself when you are finished with Stanserhorn, but don't be intimidated by taking the train. It is easy and fun. And Lucerne is a pleasant walkable town.

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.
