It will run from the valley floor in the town of Schwyz up to the village of Stoos placed on the plateau beneath the Fronalpstock mountain.
Stoos Bahn took 14 years in the making and cost CHF52m (£40m) to construct.
The funicular is known for its revolutionary design having four cylindrical cabins adjusting to changes in gradient so the floor is always on level.
The capacity of each carriage is 34 people with speed of 10m a second through the 1,720m track while the journey takes four minutes.
The previous funicular was built in 1993 and it will be replaced by the new one.
The track will be going through some of the mountain for some part of the journey and will climb 743m in total.
The railway spokesperson Ivan Steiner, railway spokesperson said that everyone was proud of the train and it materialised after 14 years of planning and building.
The Stoos Bahn was opened to the public on Sunday 17 December.
