This is an easily accessible peak with spectacular views of central Switzerland’s mountains and lakes. The ride to the top has two sections: first a funicular and then a cablecar. The latter boasts the world’s first open upper deck, which has room for up to 30 people to stand and enjoy the ride under the open sky. At the summit there’s a revolving restaurant and a panorama trail. The region also offers plenty of hiking options - for example you can walk to the top from Stans in about four hours. Getting to Stans from Zurich by train takes around 75 minutes. Change train in Luzern (destination Engelberg or Dallenwil).
