Ächerli

From Stans to the Ächerli Pass and on ingenious single tracks back to Stans

Central Switzerland is blessed with myriad vantage points. Among the plethora of mountains there are some, which on account of their breathtaking panoramic views, must be counted among the top 10 peaks. The Stanserhorn Mountain is in this league. Ten lakes and some 100 kilometers of the Alpine chain are all part of the panorama awaiting you on the Stanserhorn.

Stanserhorn – the friendliest mountain

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.
