“a really nice way to get a little exercise, but not too much!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

You can take either a cable car or a mountain train up and then walk the last section. There is a restaurant at the main level and benches at the top to rest. The view is beautiful!

“Good trip up by rail and great views summer and winter.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

You can go up one side by cable car and the other )from Brannenburg) by cog railway . The trains are modern and run well and for what it is a fair price compaired to say a mountain railway prices in Switzerland . On a clear day view out of the Alps of Baveria south and the Tirol to the north . Little church and steps to the top and of course a resturant . also used for sking in winter.

Good round trip if your in this area of the Inn valley .

“A Must do when is the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Its such an amazing ride up and when you get there the views are magnificent. The walk down the caves is quiet good - but only for the energetic.

“A Beautiful site....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

A great attraction, 1730m Mountain with a restaurant at the top with amazing views. It is a little pricey for the travel up if you are not walking, a rail pass up there will cost you 28.00 Euro. The food at the top is reasonably priced and great.

A nice little gem
