Impressions

The wind in your hair in a convertible-style cable car: A new cable car system lets guests enjoy fresh air and great views around Mount Stanserhorn. The double-decker cable car has an open upper deck.

Riding to the top of the 1,900-meter Mount Stanserhorn with the wind in your hair, the blue sky above you and a fantastic 360° panorama: that was the concept of the new cable car to replace the one from Kälti to Stanserhorn. A crazy idea? Maybe, but today we can see that it was a thoroughly viable one.

The so-called “CabriO” cable car is the world’s first cable car with a roofless upper deck. The comfortable double-decker is the very latest in cable car technology. The lower level (with windows going almost from wall-to-wall) has space for 60 people. From there, an elegant staircase leads up to the sun deck, which offers room for about 30 people. The guests can enjoy 360° panoramic views as well as the fresh mountain air.
