At the very heart of Switzerland, a world record holding technical innovation awaits: the world’s steepest funicular leads from Schwyz up to Stoos.

Since its opening in December 2017, this magnet for visitors has delighted countless national as well as international guests. The cabins of the funicular are unique: They perfectly adapt to the extreme gradient in such a way that the standing platform remains perfectly level at all times, making the ride very comfortable for the passengers. With a gradient of up to 110 percent (47 degrees) no mean feat! Nestling in the Alpine landscape of Central Switzerland, the small holiday village of Stoos sits at roughly 1,300 metres altitude.
