Stans

A quaint town set between Lake Lucerne and the Alps, Stans serves as a great starting point for exploring the beautiful surroundings.

Stans is the capital of the canton of Nidwalden. The local mountain, the Stanserhorn is also a tourist resort, accessible via one of the oldest mountain railways in Switzerland and by cable car. From the peak of the Stanserhorn, on a clear day the view stretches nearly 100 km and includes 10 Swiss lakes and the Black Forest of Germany.
