When the cable car from Wengen to Männlichen recommences operations on 1 Jun 2018 after a maintenance break, there will be new cable cars that have a demountable open-air balcony on the roof. This trip will be marketed as the Royal Ride.

The balcony will only be fitted for the summer season, then dismantled to provide greater passenger capacity during the ski season. A spiral staircase inside the cable car provides access to the balcony.

Information on the Männlichen site is only in German, but there is information in English on the MySwitzerland site: en-au/about-switzerland/geographic -facts/mountains-all/the-royal-experience-even-more-enjoyment-on-the-mountain.html royal-ride.html
