The steepest funicular railway of the world bring you up to Stoos in a few minutes: the slope is 110%, about 47 degrees.
Best way for reaching the valley-station of the railway .
The old railway, now out of business
The ride up to the pea with the new railway
The Mythen peaks just behind the first railway tunnel
The split track in the middle of the run

Summer turns its head away
from the flowers that adorned my walks for so long time.
Time to leave the alpine paths to rest under the rain
and the quiet sleep of Winter snow.
Much I walked these Summer paths
yet I do not know where they might lead me.
The reindeer put his silver horns into water:
what will Winter bring along?
Wood-fire and fireworks in a night enlighten by the Milky Way.
Up there, through Scorpio to down there on Lake Lucerne, billions of fires turned on.
What a show the night sky on the Alps… watch it at least once in your life…
