We could only ride to the middle station but enjoyed the views. Once the upper station is open I can imagine it will be beautiful. I do think the price is kind of steep at €18 per adult for a five minute ride. Once you’re...More

The Jennerbahn is still under construction, but the middle station is operating. Hint for a day trip: If necessary use the parking area, perhaps save some money via guest card and buy a ticket one way to the middle station. Take hiking path to “Königsbachalm”...More

We came to Berchtesgaden for a beautiful day of hiking. The Jennerbahn was helpful to cut down the trip. Unfortunately the ticket counter at the top was not open when needed (2:30 PM) which was not appreciated. After an arduous trek it would have been...More

The cable car and chair lift are closed for major renovations so they are closed for many months. I also saw no notice anywhere until we drove from Salzburg 😢

The Jennerbahn is being rebuilt and is not in operation. However, there is plenty to do in the surrounding area to make up for this.

This is a ski resort and lift. However, we did not ski for this visit. We took the lift to the top of the mountain to take pictures and enjoy a lunch. The views and our pictures are quite beautiful. We also started to hike...More

Thanks for the response. Too bad! We will be in Schonau am Konigssee in September 2017. I was really looking forward to the beautiful views from on top. Do you know of any other cable cars in the area?
