Funicular Stoos - Schlattli
The Stoos funicular in Schwyz is a spectacular mountain railroad that has been in operation since December 2017. The funicular runs from the Schwyz-Schlattli valley station to Stoos, a car-free resort at 1,300 meters above sea level. The route is 1,740 meters long and overcomes a difference in altitude of 743 meters. The Stoos funicular is the steepest funicular in the world with a maximum gradient of 110 percent. The funicular travels through the mountain in a 110-meter tunnel tube, overcoming a height difference of 47 meters. On the route there is also a breathtaking bridge, the so-called "suspension bridge", which seems to float above the abyss with a length of 374 meters and a height of 58 meters. The railroad has a capacity of 1,500 people per hour and has two cabins, each of which can accommodate 136 people. The cabins are completely barrier-free and offer a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains. There are numerous recreational opportunities on Stoos, such as hiking, skiing and sledding. The Stoos funicular is a highlight for tourists and locals alike and an unforgettable experience.
