Cable cars

The region’s two cable cars transport visitors effortlessly up the mountains. The cable cars are open daily for summer operations from the beginning of May until the end of October and provide excellent starting points for beautiful hikes.

Karwendel cable car in Pertisau

The Karwendel cable car takes visitors from Pertisau up to the Zwölferkopf, from where they get to enjoy the superb view over the turquoise waters of Lake Achensee. Thanks to its special thermals, the mountain which stands 1,480 metres tall is also one of the preferred starting points for paragliders and visitors get to watch them getting ready for take-off. The traditional Bärenbadalm is within a walking distance of half an hour and offers a variety of tasty Tirolean treats. Those who prefer not to take the cable car back, can return to the valley on a one-hour hike via the scenic Tunnelweg trail.
