High in the mountains, you have a unique view over the beautiful landscape of Bavaria all year round. And what is the best way of getting there? With the numerous means of transport of the Verband Deutscher Seilbahnen und Schlepplifte e.V.
For example, you can sail over the roofs of Bad Reichenhall at a comfortable 18 kilometres per hour in the Predigtstuhl cable car. It is the oldest original large cabin cable car in the world. When you get to the top, you can see over the Alps to Lake Chiemsee and in good weather even as far as Munich.
Cable cars and ski lifts: major role in BavariaThe cable car industry plays a major role in the tourism region of Bavaria. The association advises and trains its around 120 companies in technology, safety, protection of the environment and more.
Its website provides you with links to the web cams on the mountains, amongst other things. This allows you to check the weather before you travel. Or videos of the ski run can get you in the mood. You can also discover the practical online cable car search. Filter places, for example, according to whether there is a summer toboggan run, paragliding or cable cars equipped for disabled people there.
The companies of the Association of German Cable Cars and Ski Lifts also organise wonderful special events. One of them is the “400 peaks brunch” on the Nebelhorn: Enjoy fresh fruit, ham and croissants high above the valleys with a view of the surrounding mountain peaks. Or celebrate New Year's Eve in an alpine hut with a 7-course menu and live band – return journey in the cable car included, of course. You can find an overview of the highlights on the association's website.
