Full description
Your tour begins with meeting your tour guide in the lobby of your hotel. Together with your tour guide, you'll make your way to the train station in Zürich. An intercity train will take you to Lucerne, a journey that takes about an hour. You'll continue by boat over Lake Lucerne. The one-hour cruise on the lake takes you to Beckenried, where you change to a local bus.

Within 20 minutes, you'll arrive at Stans, the capital village of the Canton of Nidwalden. With a short walk around in the village, you'll pass by the von Winkelried Memorial, a soldier of Stans and an important person during the local battles and foundation of Switzerland. You'll walk over the famous village square, which was rebuilt after a fire in 1713, finally arriving at the funicular station. 

Receive your boarding pass to take a seat on the funicular, built in 1893. Over the course of 10 minutes, you'll travel through the upper part of the village with a charming view out to Stans and Lake Lucerne. After the funicular, get on board the unique Cabrio Gondola, which will take you to the peak.kYou can board the lower deck behind panoramic windows or you step up to the rooftop and enjoy the ride on the open deck. Once arriving at Mount Stanserhorn, you can take a short walk to the summit,  or visit the revolving restaurant and enjoy the view from inside. The choice is yours!

On the terraces, you'll have a stunning view of the surrounding mountains! Whenever you're ready, you can take the return journey back to Stans, where you will board the local train to Lucerne. In Lucerne, you'll board the intercity train back to Zürich, where the tour will end. If you prefer, your guide will escort you back to the hotel.
