Hint

Intro

The small and quaint town at 450 meters above sea level with roughly 8,000 inhabitants lies in privileged position between Lake Lucerne and the mountains. The main town of Nidwalden, at approximately 20 minutes from Lucerne, is easily reached by car as well as with public transport.

The village square and neighboring alleyways, where sunny restaurant terraces invite you to stay a while, form the heart and soul of Stans. On discovery tours around Stans, the curious soon pinpoint culturally historic buildings, the community parish, patrician houses and memorials dedicated to Arnold von Winkelried and Heinrich Pestalozzi as well as plenty more to catch the eye. It’s not surprising that guided tours through the town prove most popular, and during the summer months these are offered free of charge.

Winter

Eight winter sports and a cross-country skiing area pledge sportive diversity in the region - all of which are reached in between 20 and maximum 50 minutes.

Summer

Stans is the perfect departure point for all kinds of excursions around Lake Lucerne. And whether by bike or on foot there’s plenty to see and do. Nidwalden is known for its umpteen mountain cable railways that head for some of the surrounding summits. These range from time-honored to top-modern cable cars, with airy Cabriolet-feeling guaranteed in the world’s first topless double-decker cable car that takes you up to the region’s hometown Stanserhorn mountain.
