At first I thought we only took one cable car up and down, and I thought it was kind of a ripoff. Then I realized it's TWO cable cars, and a chairlift, and you are up at the top of the world with incredible views! The cable cars were fun, a little cramped and you get the best views from only one or two sides to people were jostling for space. They also don't warn you when you're going up that when the cable goes through the rollers, there's a big dip afterwards and the car rocks back and forth like crazy! That was a little scary and I almost fell over, but no big deal. Once we got to the top, the views were unmatched - you can see everything! You can take your time at the top, there's a restaurant and tables outside to hang out and relax, and enjoy the views on the way down without so much jostling in the cars!

I highly recommend this! I am afraid of heights and wasn't really sure if it is worth it, but the moment you start seeing the town, the lake, the islands, all fears disappear. On the top there is a caffeteria where you can sit, have a coffee and enjoy the amazing view! During a bright weather one can see really a lot - the lake, the mountains, the small towns next to the lake. The only thing that I didn't like is the cable car's cabin (more like basket). Even without wind it can be shaky and when trying to take a picture it is a bit inconvenient to keep balance. But the view is totally worth it!

Returned to area after three years and this is still the most memorable experience. Up a mountain in a bucket open to the elements. Great views over lake as you rise. At the top is a restaurant and separate cafe both with super views. Stopped for couple of beers. Are trails up and down but why bother when cost is 10€ return. Great value. The ground station in the town is not obvious so worth checking on google maps or similar.

Definetly worth a visit. The ride is pretty old school with the open cabinets,but that is only a good thing. Fast load/unloa d and no queues at all. Views from top are spectacular.

Wonderful memories and many photographies you vuoi gave after that amazing trip. No difference in ages but all people enjoying to observe that fantastic mountains from Italy to Switzerland. The restaurant and hotel there perfect. All dishes fresh and very yammy. Also from 14 o’clock every day about 10-12 parachute and paraplanes you could see. If you ll take a small carpet you could enjoy on the grass under sun.
