Welcome to Stanserhorn
Looming above the lake, 1898m Stanserhorn (www.stanserhorn.ch; 13km south of Lucerne) boasts 360-degree vistas of Lake Lucerne, Mt Titlis, Mt Pilatus and other surrounding mountains. Getting to the summit is half the fun. It involves a vintage 1893 funicular followed by a state-of-the-art double-decker cable car with an open upper deck. Once you reach the top, there are 'Stanserhorn Rangers' to point out what is going on, including marmot-viewing, a geo-trail and an earth energy spot to keep you busy.
