Tour description:
Ride on this day trip from Zurich the worlds first open-air aerial cableway. The cabin has two platforms; one inside and the outside open deck where you can breathe the fresh air of the Alps during the ride and enjoy a stunning panorama view of the Lake Lucerne.

We leave Zurich around 9 AM by train and travel to the base station of the Stanserhorn aerial cable car which will take about 2 hours. Enjoy the 360° view on the 10 minutes ride with the unique open-air gondola and take amazing pictures, as there are no windows in your way.

At noon we reach the summit station of Mount Stanserhorn, at 1900 meters. We can spend up to three hours on the peak. As this is a private tour, it`s your choice how long you want to stay. Enjoy the views without rush, and you can have a nice lunch at the Restaurant (not included in the tour price)

In the afternoon we return on the same route. In Lucerne we do a stop, where we visit the Landmark Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke) and walk through the city before we return to Zurich.
