  • So the panorama and the view into the Karwendel is unique. The gondola therefore does not travel long waiting times every few minutes. Also at the restaurant above you have a wonderful panoramic view.

  • I've been here twice. Unfortunately, for the first time we could only see fog. Since we had bought an Inssbruck Card, we had to drive up despite bad weather. The second time the weather was optimal. for this, the trains were so busy that we had to calculate about 1 hr waiting time for all journeys. There were also scrums and pushes. Upstairs the view was fantastic and you can walk on simple paths and enjoy the magnificent view of Innsbruck and the surrounding mountains.

  • Beautiful mountain view on the top, in all directions. Perfect location for summer hiking on all kinds of terrain.
  • Absolutely breathtaking view! Go on a clear day to take it all in! Just hold on to your kids! The top is beautiful and there is a small restaurant to enjoy a beer or soup.
