Great views from the top and the scenery is amazing in the snow. Views over the alps to the south are super! Cafe is good but quite pricey. The one big negative is that the cable car broke down just before the last trip down...More

Quick and well organised single Cabin lift, but small (12 - 15 persons). Good cafe at summit and nice walks but view at summit of lift restricted to 180 degrees. Nice walks to it along river from Ruhpolding.

Friendly ride up and down. Lots of facilities at the top including a restaurant, walks are also available around the summit and the summit cross is a must just to touch and look out over the mountain tops. And yes the toilets facilities are fine.

We did catch a bus from a bus stop near the railway station in Ruhpolding. We also returned by bus. There is a little restaurant at the top, such a lovely place to walk about. Enjoy your trip.
