The ride itself is fun, the views are amazing and the place is well organized. Take in consideration that in the station itself there is no elevator, if you are with buggy you still need to take the stairs (but it's short)

Like with many cable cars this one isn't cheap to ride. The ride takes about 20 minutes up the side of the mountain to the top station where it is a short walk further up to the summit. There is a cafe here where you...More

I never miss a chance to go up in a cable car and this one didn't disappoint. Splendid views from the top. There is also a restaurant where you can sit outside and look down on the lakes and mountains.

Take you about 4500' up the Zwolferhorn Mountain, one of about 12 peaks you can see from the top, in a little cable car which could fit 4 but I'd rather have 2 in it ! Not cheap - about £24 return at the time...More

This really is a 'must do' if visiting the area. The Cable car offers a beautiful smooth ride for over 10 minutes to a mountaintop high above Lake Wolfgang. The views are nothing less than spectacular, and a short walk to the summit reveals a...More

A must see about 30-45 minutes outside of Salzburg. You can also hike around the top - the view is breathtaking. This photo was taken mid to late June, lots of wildflowers in bloom

If you are in St Gilgen, you have got to do the cable car ride, the 24.50 euro is well worth it for the views on the way up & at the top. The ride itself takes about 15 minutes in a cable car which...More

Don't let the price of 24,50 EUR put you off, it's really worth it! The views that you get when you get to the top of the mountain are simply breathtaking! You won't be sorry you paid so much for the cable car when you...More

Wonderful trip up the mountain in a traditional cable car. Reach 1522m for a breathtaking panoramic view of Wolfgangsee lake and the beautiful mountains. Franz-hutte serves traditional Austrian food at a surprisingly reasonable price. Enjoy a Yeager tee or some traditional soup. The price higher...More

Hi, it's a 5-10 minute walk, you will see the cross when you exit the cable car stop, just walk up the steps and then up the hill. Have a great time! The views are magnificent!
