Only recently opened, this is an amazing experience and a wonderful feat of engineering. The circular carriages take quite a few people and tilt as you ascend/descend so you dont feel the steep incline/descent. The access is from Schwyz and travels in only a short...More

Lost my breath on my way up and again on my way up. The design and innovation. No words. Impressive. Worth every penny and the trip. Plus Stoos as a town offers groundbreaking views!!!

The newly opened route from Schwyz to Stoos has the steepest funicular in the world. A very weird steep experience, worth doing. Staff at all stops - we took a day card and went up various other routes of the Stoosbahnen were all very friendly...More

Impressive ride on the train. The train itself is amazing and the engineering behind the whole thing is a wonder. It's so steep that it almost feels like a lift but smoother and the views are incredible!

I recently visited latest Stoosbahn and was really impressed by the engineering achievement. Something the Swiss can be really proud of. Worth visiting even if you don't intend to go up the next leg to the top of the mountains.

OK, may be this train is the "most something" in the world, may be there were amazing engineering solutions - but since we are coming to enjoy the nature - this train is nothing special. Not cheap and crowded. Stoos and around has incredible views...More

First of all, if you happen to drive here, beware that google maps and GPS systems do NOT have the new location programmed. It is a bit further past the old station that is pictured on TripAdvisor. It opened in Dec 2017. The new location...More
