The Gelmer cable car with its 106% gradient is Europe's steepest cable car. The ride in the open carriages takes one up to Lake Gelmer, which is situated at an altitude of 1,860 meters above sea level. The region where the reservoir is located is the starting point for hikes and mountain tours.
The aerial cable car to the summit of Mt. Titlis offers one of the most panoramic views of mountain peaks and glaciers. During the last 600 meters of the ascent the gondola lift revolves once by 360 degrees and gives visitors an unrestricted 360-degree view of the alpine landscape.
It created an absolute sensation when the hotel and railroad pioneer Franz-Josef Bucher-Durrer built the Hammetschwand lift at the Bürgenberg in 1905.
