This was a fantastic experience, very well organised, efficient trip to the top - hard to decide which was the best part - the 100 year old furnicular and then sleek Cabrio cable car trip or the stunning scenery from the top! Do check the weather first, we couldn't see the mountain top from Lucerne but the webcam showed summit... More

Your journey starts with a trip on the wooden funicular which takes you to the Cabrio cable car station. You can stay indoors or stand outside which gives you the opportunity to take in the views or in our case travel through the clouds! Our meal in the revolving Restaurant was delicious and the views amazing, especially when we made... More

The Stanserhorn isn't your typical mountain and the CbriO isn't your typical cable car. The CabriO offers an open-roof cable car ride to the top of Stanserhorn, giving you 360 views of Lake Lucerne, Lucerne canton and neighboring cities. The air is crisp and fresh. The view is unforgettable! Once at the top, be sure to climb to the Stanserhorn's... More

Gorgeous views of the mountains. This is a spot that you shouldn't miss! You take a funicular up to the CabriO cable car station. Then, the cable car up to the top. The restaurant up top is very popular. But, there are plenty of places to walk around, if you are interested in hiking down a bit (or all the... More

Another mountain of superlatives in Central Switzerland. For the first part you ascend the mountain on a rickety old wooden funicular (Standseilbahn) and then you switch to the relatively new world-sensation, boasting a spectacular ride on the world's only open-topped "CabriO" gondola, an engineering masterpice that glides on 2 huge metal guide cables mounted on the side of the gondola...

We got tickets for CabriO from our friends as gift and went there recently on our Switzerland trip. Only spoiler upfront was a numerous amount of Bus loads with Chinese tourists which occurred a waiting time for others of 2 hrs to get up there. Otherwise the experience was great and feels so close to everything, trees, birds,clouds. You shouldn't... More

The Stanserhorn cable car is a stunning innovation - an open top gondola that is more like a roller coaster than a conventional gondola. The Cabrio is fast, and offers stunning views down to the lake below and onto the green valleys behind, as well as over to the snow capped peaks of the Alps. There is great hiking from... More

This is a definite must see! I visited Stanserhorn on a rather cloudy day (unfortunately) but it was still worth the trip on the funicular and then the Cabrio. Standing outside on top of the Cabrio as you entered the clouds was actually a pretty neat experience. At the top there is a great restaurant and gift shop and a... More

One if the highlights of our recent trip to Europe!! It was a really cloudy morning so it looked like the cables just went off into nowhere!! Standing on the top of the cable car was exciting!! Once we got to the top, the views were amazing! We were above the clouds and it was gorgeous. There are hiking trails... More

Self service restaurant where seating has a rotating platform. Food for choice is a bit limited to "chips and sausages"
