The Fronalpstock (1'922 m) is located at the eastern end of lake Lucerne in the canton of Schwyz. From the summit area there is a splendid view over the lake and the surrounding mountains. The mountain can be reached by a funicular railway or a cable car to Stoos village and then by hike or a chair lift to the summit.
The old funicular from Schlattli to the car free village Stoos (opened 1933) was one of the world's steepest funicular. A new funicular on a new track has been opened on 15th December 2017. It is the steepest funicular in Switzerland and the world steepest two-cabin funicular with a maximum gradient of 110%. (the steepest funicular in the world is that of Katoomba in the Blue Mountains in Australia with a maximum gradient of 122% but with only one car).
