    Hold on! Hyperlapse video turns a picturesque funicular journey through Swiss mountains

    Hold on! Hyperlapse video turns a picturesque funicular journey through Swiss mountains into a stomach-churning rollercoaster ride

    • A Swiss adventurer has posted footage of one of Europe’s steepest railways
    • The Gelmer Funicular is located on mountains just outside Bern, Switzerland 
    • The railway was designed to bring workers to a remote hydro-electric plant 
    • Since 2001, the railway has been opened to the public and is a tourist hot spot 

    This vertigo-inducing footage shows a first person perspective of the stomach-churning journey on a cable railway through the Swiss mountains.

    The time lapse journey looks more like a rollercoaster ride as the carriages travel up the near vertical mountain side.

    The footage was filmed at Gelmer Funicular, one of the steepest mountain cable railways in Europe, nestled in the mountains in Bern, Switzerland.

    Swiss native Senai I, who manages the social media page ‘Senna Relax’, captured the breathtaking video.

    He said: ‘Gelmer Funicular is one of the steepest mountain railways in Europe and had provided employees with access to the many dams and turbine plants on the Grimsel Pass area until 2001, when it was opened for the public.

    ‘It has become so popular over the last two years. It’s funny how many people on social media visited this place after seeing my video just to film the same footage.

    ‘The video I made is a hyperlapse and gives it the look of an awesome rollercoaster even if in reality it is very slow.

    ‘We can enjoy beautiful views all around in the 10 minute long ride and can carry up to 24 passengers!’

    Some 24 passengers can ride the railway at the same time for the journey which takes 10 minutes
