The land of a thousand cable cars

Cable cars are an intrinsic part of Swiss cultural heritage. They hold a fascinating appeal, inspire dreams and rekindle memories. They combine incredible feats of engineering and entrepreneurial pursuit of innovation. Three museums are currently holding a joint interactive exhibition dedicated to cable cars. Under the slogan ‘Cable Car – Happiness’, various aspects of this remarkable mode of transport are explored.

‘Luft Seil Bahn Glück’: Gelbes Haus Flims, Nidwaldner Museum Stans and Heimatschutzzentrum Zurich. Until 28 October 2018.
