Facts about the new funicular railway

A mammoth project: Since 16 December 2017 the steepest funicular railway in the world operates from Schwyz to Stoos. All you need to know about the new funicular railway:

110 per cent

maximum incline can be overcome by the Stoos railway. World record! No other funicular railway in the world is steeper.

1,500 passengers

per direction of travel can be transported in one hour. That is 500 passengers more than with the old funicular railway.

3 – 5 minutes

is the travel time. Much less than with the old funicular railway. Much more important: The mountain station of the new funicular railway is located in the middle of the village directly within the ski area – a huge plus in terms of comfort!

744 metres elevation gain

the railway goes from Schwyz-Schlattli to Stoos. The best part: Thanks to the automatic level compensation of the cabins you always stand horizontally – really comfortable!

1,740 metres

is the distance of the route from the valley station to the mountain station.

34 passengers

fit in a cabin. Four cabins per wagon amounts to a transportation capacity of 136 passengers per ride.

It took 14 years

to plan and implement, while eleven votes were won.
