Intro

In Swiss dialect they are known as Buiräbähnli: the cable cars that the mountain farmers once relied on for transport. They are now the highlight of a hike spread over a number of days in the Engelberg mountains - the Buirähähnli Safari.

The Buiräbähnli Safari is a great chance to discover the Engelberg mountain region on foot and enjoy the mountain air. The highlight of the new tour is the trip in the cable cars once used by the farmers to transport materials. That is an experience in itself as the cable car only works on request: Take the receiver, turn the handle and speak into the station telephone - and off you go. Accommodation is provided in original mountain huts by the wayside.
