Gletscherexpress & Wildspitzbahn

Lift closed

The Gletscherexpress cable car transports guests to 2,840 metres above sea level, where they will find the bottom station of the Wildspitzbahn cable car taking them all the way up to 3,440 metres – the highest point in any ski resort in Tirol. As well as magnificent views of the surrounding mountains, not least the Wildspitze (Tirol's highest mountain), visitors will find the highest café in Tirol, Café 3.440, with a large terrace and unique panoramic vies. The top station of the Wildspitzbahn is also an ideal starting point for high-mountain hikes and treks.
