Guided Cable Car Tours

A look behind the scenes

You have the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the Ahornbahn and Penkenbahn with one of our employees. During the tour, you’ll learn all about the technology at play and the effort that comes with operating a cable car as well as facts about capacity, amounts of cement, number of columns, and much more. You’ll surely be amazed when we tell you why the Penkenbahn has to make a 6-degree turn on its way up the mountain and what challenges were faced during its construction!


Here is some information that we'd like to share with you: Our Ahornbahn can transport 1,170 people per hour and the large gondola cabin can carry up to 160 people. The cables are 3,052 meters long and the gondolas travel at a speed of 10 meters per second, taking you to the summit station in only 6.4 minutes.



Ahornbahn: Sunday, 11:00 a.m.

3S Penkenbahn: Wednesday, 2:00 p.m.
