Our local mountain


The Stanserhorn (1897m) lies between the villages of Stans, Ennetmoos, Kerns, Dallenwill and Oberdorf, south of Lake Lucerne and thus in the Unterwaldner Prealps. On the southeast flank at an altitude of 1226m the small resort of Wirzweli. In summer Wirzweli is a hiking area, in winter it has a ski lift and a children’s tow lift.

Cog Railway

The railway to the Stanserhorn was opened on August 23, 1893, at the same time as the newly built Hotel Stanserhorn Kulm. In 1895, an electric searchlight with the power of 22,000 normal candles was installed on the summit to draw attention to the mountain as an attraction.


The revolving restaurant Rondorama was opened as a tourist attraction in 2001, giving a panoramic view of the Vosges and the Feldberg. Since 2012 it has been possible to travel up the Stanserhorn on the world’s only double-decker “convertible train”.

We pick you up at the hotel and drive directly to the valley station in Stans and get you the tickets. If you wish, our chauffeur will accompany you and show you the attractions on the Stanserhorn, invite you to a guided tour and show you the fauna and flora, rare alpine flowers and the circling eagles. If you’d like to hike, our guide will be happy to take you down the east slope of Chli Horn. A short detour to the Holzwang chapel on the Ächerlipass is definitely worth it, from there you can enjoy a wonderful view towards Obwalden. We continue hiking in the direction of the Wirzwelibahn mountain station, the summer toboggan run and the playground make children’s hearts beat faster. We take the cable car to Dallenwil, take the shuttle bus to the train station and then back to Stans.

Next to the delta starting point on the Stanserhorn are the crowd’s favourites, the marmots in an enclosure.

Of course, you can also hike down from the Stanserhorn, fly back with a paraglider or race down into the valley on a mountain bike.

Our tip: A spectacular convertible train, the Stanserhorn, the cabin holds 60 people, including 30 people on the upper deck, which you can reach via a spiral staircase during the journey. At the top of the Stanserhorn you have a stunning view of the surrounding mountains, the Buchs airfield and the surrounding villages along Lake Lucerne.
