For me, the barrel-shaped carriage is the highlight but not the steepness. The design of these bright yellow carriages is so cool. They look like a caterpillar or a multi-cylinder whistle but certainly not like a funicular. The carriages rotate to maintain a level floor surface for passengers. So I didn’t feel the inclination at all inside the carriage. We took this caterpillar-like funicular to Stoos where we changed to take a ski lift reaching Klingenstock. From there we started the hike for two hours along the mountain range to reach Fronalstock. The scenery en route was beautiful. On the left is Lake Lucerne and on the right is Grosser Mythen (1898m) and Kleiner Mythen (1810m). The countless colourful wild flowers along the track further made the hike relaxing and enjoyable.

This was quite an amazing journey up and through the mountain. The only negative was that each carriage was so packed with people, skis, sledges, prams and dogs... unless you were by the window you couldn’t see the stunning view. Don’t let this put you off, it was a Sunday.. when you get through the mountain and the fog...its a real wow moment. Good restaurants and lovely walks as well as skiing and snowshoe walks and of course sledging. About an hour drive from Zurich. You have to do it, the steepest journey up a mountain you will ever take....

Funicular cars are becoming less and less. This however has been designed and implemented in the last 20 years. Probably gives the explanation for access to latest developments in technology to afford this kind of inclination. The start of the Stoosbahn is in a valley and this means reduces parking spaces, however they have tried and marked off areas where one could park and they also have a shuttle bus included in parking ticket which is fairly efficient. The auto-rotating cabins to accommodate for the steep incline is kinda cool. The views are amazing once you reach to the top. There is a small village where lodgings can be found and a good selection restaurants. It has to be mentioned that they are pricey even by Swiss standards, considering that they have to use the cable cars or the Funicular for all supplies, its not surprising. One can take small hikes along well marked paths which provide access to view points.To reach the Fronalpstock there is another cable ride which is kind of exciting in its own way.

We visited on a saver day pass and loved the 7 min furnicular ride up (included in the pass) from the Stoos bahn to the pretty car-free village of Stoos. The furnicular is an engineering marvel and looked amazing from the pics we took. Stoos is a small pretty village. From the top of the furnicular station, it is a 10min walk (follow the signs) to the next station to take the ski chair lifts to Fronalpstock mountain. However, it was raining heavily when we were there and the cost (CHF 25 return with no discount on the half fare card or saver day pass) for the 4 of us did not justify the trip because everything was shrouded in fog and cloud. We were still happy to have taken the furnicular ride though. Our travel path - took a train to Schwyz station, then right at the train station, bus no. 1 is a 15 min ride to Stoos bahn. This was becuase of construction works during this time.
