Stanserhorn – the friendliest mountain

Historic Transportation – The 1,898 meter high Stanserhorn offers a view of ten lakes, 100 kilometers of the Alpine mountain range and three countries. Even the arrival by nostalgic cable car has its charms. The most convenient spots to enjoy the panorama are in the revolving restaurant or on the viewing platform.

Since 1893 open wooden carriages slowly make their way in leisurely manner from Stans direction Stanserhorn – terminating at the mid station after which you board the CabriO and a new generation in transport.

Säntis – a much welcomed sight

Sehenswürdigkeiten / Aktivitäten – Just like a unpenetrable fortress the Alpsteinmassiv juts out high above the undulating hills of the Appenzell: its highest point is 2502-meter-high Mount Säntis. The ride in the gondola is breath-taking: take in Lake Constance, the Vorarlberg, the Graubünden, Glarus and Bernese Alps. On a clear day one can even see the Vosges Mountains and the Black Forest.

Meteorologists knew why they established a weather station on this mountain already in 1882. The Säntis is seen from near and far…. just like the panoramic views as seen from the summit.
