Couple taking the Adliswil–Felsenegg cable car (LAF)

No two days are the same

It only takes a matter of moments to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. «I find it fascinating that it only takes five minutes to reach the forest with the cable car and leave the city and stress behind. I still enjoy the ride to this day», says Patrick Joss, who has been working for the Adliswil–Felsenegg cable car (LAF) since 2012. «Felsenegg is an excellent place to head for a spontaneous getaway in the great outdoors.» The 29-year-old funicular technician learned his trade with Pilatus Bahnen. After completing further training as a cableways specialist and later as a cableways manager, he’s now Head of Technology and Operations at LAF, which means he’s responsible for ensuring operation of the vehicles, maintaining the facilities, buildings and the surrounding area, and managing a team of around 11 people. He also trains budding cable car operators. «I especially like the great variety that my job offers. No two days are the same.»

Now also in English!

The number of Adliswil–Felsenegg cable car (LAF) passengers who don't speak German has been on the rise for years. So a few months ago the LAF therefore made the decision to have the website translated into English and now it is done. The website of the Adliswil–Felsenegg cable car (LAF) is now available in English as well.

To ensure the safety and comfort of our guests, the LAF system undergoes a comprehensive annual safety revision. Our team performs routine maintenance and makes any necessary repairs to the system, including towers, cabins, brakes and cables. The entire LAF is also given a thorough cleaning.



A Covid certificate is not required for a ride with the Adliswil–Felsenegg cable car (LAF). However, please follow all personal hygiene rules, maintain social distance and wear a mask whenever inside the station or cable car cabin. The number of passengers allowed inside the cabins is currently limited to 15, which can lead to longer waiting times.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
