It was a thrill to ride on the open air gondola. You really get a different feeling with the wind blowing through your hair!

“A must have experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Very enjoyable experience. Great new and unique gondolas. Good facilities on mountain even including sunlounges for relaxing on food court deck area. Enjoyed much more than a subsequent visit to the Titlis at Engelberg.

“It is true...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

All that has been said by previous reviewers seems to be true. However, two points that do not seem to have been mentioned: firstly, wait for it, there is wifi on board (unless the signal from a base station is remarkably strong). On the other hand, the journey is something like six minutes...so you could discover that networking resulted in not seeing the views.

Secondly, please do not underestimate the gradient if you plan to walk down to Stans. It is about three hours but, more salient, is the fact that most of the route is very steep.

Oh, nearly forgot, one reviewer referred to an obese squirrel near the summit...these are captive marmots!

“Skip the crowds, hype, and expense of Mt. Pilatus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Saw the ad for this at the Lucerne Tourist Office at the Lucerne train station while in line for info. A real value of train, funicular, and cable car for $69 per person. Seamless connections between modes and was on top of the Stanserhorn in less than one hour and the combo ticket enabled skipping the ticket line at the funicular/cable car station. Nice trip on the funicular through the steep meadows and grazing cows and chalets to the cable car terminal. Upper open deck of the cable car is a REAL better-than-Disney experience. Expansive view of the Bernese Alps from the top, comfortable and inviting terrace, and paths to higher elevations from there. Didn't miss the additional 300 meters or so lacking in height vs. Pilatus! Stans, starting point of the trip, is a nice place for lunch on the town square.

“What a day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

We took a boat across lake Lucern in the morning. Then took the cogwheel railway which goes about a third of the way up. Up to 5 people can stand on either the front or rear platform. That's the best, the rest have to sit in the car.
Next 2/3 rd's of the trip is on the cable car. Go to the top level, being outdoors for the best photography and video as you travel up to the Alps. Once your there take some of the walks or enjoy the breathtaking views from the cafe. Highly recommended and one if the best tours we have done in our extensive travels.
