Lovely views Make sure you know the time of the last lift down before lunch or else you are stuck for an hour. Nice restaurant for lunch but pricey.

Great cable car and additional chair lift. Views are superb. Be careful if thinking of walking down as this is not an easy walk on the old railway incline.

The views were terrific. Be careful of timing though - they take a lunch break so you could have an hour or so where you can't get back down the mountain.

Because it was so hot views were too hazy to be photographed. Chairlift up to the very top closed for ages at lunchtime so we had to walk down - not impressed in the heat. Time your visit around this.

Thrill and excitement a chance to see sights one wouldn't have otherwise seen. Fast moving ride through the mountain scenery. Suitable for older children and adults all very safe.

What a ride! Weather was unbelievably bad when we went, but even so, it was a great trip for the money. On a good day, the views would be outstanding! You've got to do it, just to see the sights.

Definitely take the chair lifts to get right to the top. We also visited the Alpine garden which is well worth the short walk because the views are amazing.

Coming down from the top we encountered a very unpleasant employee who ordered us to move back down a set of stairs and stand behind a rope. He then went back into the office and closed the door. The driver of the cable car was also a bit strange. The views were standard, but at the top is a slot... More
