This lift is amazing - what a smooth ride to the top. Our family of 4 plus a dog had no issues with this lift - we even shared the ride up with about 30 plus handball players! Really worth the trip - and the view at the top is fantastic.

Worth doing for the great view. I'd make a beeline for the cafe on exiting the car as the tables on the veranda have a stunning view. Nice to have reindeer and chamois grazing nearby.

We just had gotten off of a plane from Chicago and drove here on our way to Germany with 2 young kids. What a beautiful place! Amazing! The cost for the cable car was very reasonable as was the kid trampoline at the top. However, the restaurant at the top was hugely expensive and the cashier was rude. Too bad,... More

Pfaenderbahn is a very nice attraction located Close to the lake of constanz (Bodensee). Going up by cable car or even better Walking/hiking up the approx. 600m altitude from base to top guarantees a fantastic view on the lake and the "city" of Bregenz. If you visit this place in spring or autumn when the days are shorter on nice... More

We went up to have a nice view of the Bodensee. Sadly the weather turned as soon as we were up and couldn't see too far. But we got the idea and enjoyed the moment. Had a drink at the restaurant and went back down again. Prices were reasonable.

This place had great views. Make sure to check and double check the weather when you decide to go. We happened to go on a day when it was projected to rain. Luckily, we went early on in the day and were able to see almost everything before the rain. Don't forget to take a jacket as the temperature is... More

You can see three countries on a clear day but the best view is straight down over the tops of the towering pines. They smell good too. The alpine village with animals at the top is a treat, and the music of cowbells on the cows and sheep is mesmerizing. Children will love it. And adults can burn a few... More

We took the cable car up, enjoyed the views, walked through the animal farm then decided to walk down. Highly recommend as the views off and on down were incredible. Wear durable shoes/ boots as the terrain is quite rocky and lots of roots. In some places we were holding a rope coming down so it's not that easy but... More

Bregenz invites outside the internationally renowned Bregenz Festival for a stroll. It is worth taking the cable car ride to the Bregenz local mountain Pfänder, approximately 1000 m in good weather. Good view of an impressive alpine scenery to the Bernese Alps, the Rheinzufluß in Lake Constance, Lindau, etc. Recommended
