A short walk away from Schwyz train station, we spotted the Stoosbahnen quite easily from the street. Ticket is free with Swiss pass. You will get to see views from any barrel carriage as the funicular is really steep. This is the main way to...More
Only recently opened, this is an amazing experience and a wonderful feat of engineering. The circular carriages take quite a few people and tilt as you ascend/descend so you dont feel the steep incline/descent.
The access is from Schwyz and travels in only a short...More
The newly opened route from Schwyz to Stoos has the steepest funicular in the world. A very weird steep experience, worth doing. Staff at all stops - we took a day card and went up various other routes of the Stoosbahnen were all very friendly...More
Impressive ride on the train. The train itself is amazing and the engineering behind the whole thing is a wonder. It's so steep that it almost feels like a lift but smoother and the views are incredible!
They just replaced the old train with a new one.
It is the steepest funicular railway in the world. Definitely worth a visit. You should buy a day pass, that allows you to travel from one peak to the other. Great for a family outing.

OK, may be this train is the "most something" in the world, may be there were amazing engineering solutions - but since we are coming to enjoy the nature - this train is nothing special. Not cheap and crowded.
Stoos and around has incredible views...More
