The name of the village, Gletsch, says it all: it is clearly a place near a glacier. And indeed, that was once the case.
The funicular takes guests from the Treib landing stage in 8 minutes to the Seelisberg plateau, a popular vantage point. The mountain station is located on the “Swiss Path” leading to Rütli or Bauen. A variety of sights can be reached from the station in no time at all. The Treib–Seelisberg train connects with the PostBus to Beckenried/Stans.
