Hiking with the cable car

Cable cars make ascending and descending easy

Hiking with the cable car in Vorarlberg: Head up on foot and take the gondola back into the valley. This great way to improve your fitness is easy on the joints. Our recommended tips lead hikers to dramatic gorges, lakes, an echo wall, and to the peaks for outstanding views.

Once up high, mountain inns, often featuring sun terraces, are the perfect places to relax and enjoy. Comfortably return back to the valley with the cableway. Cable cars make returning to the valley easy, especially if you’d prefer to have a pleasant hike at altitude.


Here is a selection of hiking tips with cable car:
