64% inclination, so you hope the technology is dependable. And to your relief: the design and construction comes from Swiss engineer, Emil Strub. Opened in 1903, the Mendelbahn is regarded as the first electric powered cable car in Tyrol and is the steepest and longest continous cable car in Europe. A trip up the Mendel mountain is already an adventure in itself. And then, there's the impressive panorama of the Etsch river valley and the South Tyrolean Unterland!Technical data: course lenght: 2,37 kilometers, travel time: 12 minutes, altitude variance: 850 meters.

The mendelbahn is worth taking a detour for. going up the mountain in the train is very exciting and impressive. The view from the top is unbeliveble and breathtaking. While there i reccomend to get a bite to eat in one of the restaurants.

If you are anywhere near the Mendel Pass, you should really take a bit of time to experience this attraction. The ride takes you to St. Anton, near Caldaro, and back again (or visa-versa). The views are stunning as you traverse the face of this...More
