The Stoosbahn is located in the Muotatal a valley of canton of Schwyzand, since 1933, it is the easiest and fastest way to reach the plateau of Stoos.
The first impression when you see and use this funicular is an impression of power and strength.

At Schlattli station, the incline railway has to pass over the deep Muota gorge on an 108 meter length iron bridge and immediately climbs the steep slope to reach Stoos. A 227 meter length tunnel is located just in the middle of the line. The maximum gradient 78,1 % of the track is one of the steepest of Switzerland.

The cabins of the Stoosbahn are easily recognizable, they are made of 5 separated compartments arranged as stairs.

In 2016, the Stoosbahn will be replaced by a completely new funicular which will be the steepest funicular of Switzerland with 110% gradient.
