About Stans

People visiting Stanserhorn should take the time to visit the town of Stans.

Höfli (Rosenburg) is near the Station of Stanserhornbahn

The Höfli ( the Rosenburg) is one of Nidwalden’s oldest residential edifices. It originally fell into decay with the decline of feudalism in the 14/15th centuries. Despite further neglect in the 19/20th centuries, the building was ultimately saved from demolition. The refurbishment work completed in 1981 restored it to its former glory as manifested in the 18th century

Dorfplatz(village square)

Following the fire in 1713, the village square (Dorfplatz) was fully rebuilt, to its current unified appearance in 1715

The church

St. Peter und Paul was built from 1641 until 1647. The church was constructed in an early-Baroque style, while the bell tower is an older Romanesque structure. The three nave Basilica was built south of the earlier church, though the older bell tower dates from this previous church
