Extremely rare Turn of the Century poster printed in stone-lithography for the "Bürgenstock & Stanserhorn railways". These 2 mountains are in front of Lucerne in the central Switzerland. The "Bürgenstock Hotel" is illustrated on the mountain in the center with its lift to the summit (see detail in the down right circle) and the "Stanserhorn Hotel" on the right (See also the small image of it). The time-table was supposed to be over-printed or posted in the blank area. The Bürgenstock is a mountain above the Lucerne Lake in Switzerland (Vierwalstättersee). It is a very famous viewpoint because the mountaintop is almost completely surrounded by the lake, and the summit is accessible by the spectacular path along the vertical rock face and by an outdoor open lift, the Hammetschwand Elevator.The new lift was opened in 1905. It whisks passengers 153 meters up to the summit of the Hammetschwand in less than one minute. It was regarded as a pioneering feat in those days and is still the number one as Europe's longest exterior lift.
