If you only have an hour in this amazing city, do yourself a favour and travel on these delightful cable cars. They have just celebrated their 50 year anniversary and you can already guess that this means they are simply, efficient and delightful but above all well tried and trusted and safe! Travel from the Zoo (max. 4 per cabin,... More

A really beautiful view for a small price, but there is a nude spa right below on the cable car path, and it is quite funny once you realize it!

Really good views of the city but it is quite expensive considering it is only a 5 minute journey. We went 1 way from the park to the zoo. Glad we went on it but wouldnt bother again for the price

This is a well run cable car - you can either get off at the park at the other side (very pleasant to walk in and good play areas for children) or just stay on the car and come back to the zoo side. We did this after a zoo visit as it is just across the road. Great for... More

If you take the tourist bus (or train) to the Zoo you should try this vintage cable car. Fantastic views over the Rhine and of the city. You can stop at the spa, where we had a good meal in the resturant, go to the park, or just stay on for the return journey. It was busy on the afternoon... More

At just 6.50 euros for a return ticket, this is a great experience to see the sights across the city. Slightly unnerving as you crank up over the river but an enjoyable and worthwhile experience and a good route over to visit the spa!

We were riding the Open Top Bus Tour and hopped off at the Zoo stop to ride the cable car. Signs led us through the zoo across the road to the cable car, it is a 10 min walk each way but totally work it. The day we went wasn't busy so we had a carriage which normally takes four,... More

This is so much fun, we would have gone again if there was time. It's super that you can buy a pass at the Zoo and do both activities on the same day. Everything was clean and neat and friendly Staff that assists you. Really super to see the Rhein from above

Simplest way to get here is by tram to Zoo/Flora station. Easy to follow signposts that lead across the road and to the entrance of the cable car station. The other end of the cable car is in the uppermost north eastern section of the Rheinpark with a bus stop nearby. Great views along the Rhein, however not recommended for... More
