We were blessed with very fine weather in mid October and managed to catch one of the last cable cars before the shutdown. The 2000m rise in the cablecar was impressive and smooth. We enjoyed a hot drink at the mountain-top café and soaked up the fantastic all round views. We're not used to higher altitude walking but decided to descend on foot - it was a glorious 2-3 hour journey down that was perfectly manageable with stout footwear, that said we did pay the price with a cowboy walk for the next day or two.

I can't recommend this walk highly enough for its dramatic scenery, fantastic autumnal colours and lovely wildlife.

Haven't been to Zell-am-See for about 30 years and so took the opportunity whilst in the area to take this cable car up to the top and look down on the town and area.
Wonderful weather made the views perefect and whilst there was a bit of a queue to initially board, the views from the top were well worth the wait.
Good walking opportunities and for the bikers, (not us it must be said), looked like loads of biking routes.
Well worth the trip.

We had a Summer card which paid for the cable car to see this mountain. The views were spectacular as was the weather. The locals said it was unusually hot and the lack of rainy days was a bonus. Be prepared for wet weather if you come here, even in Summer they said. Luckily this year was different as it was over 30c every day. Great place to come and then walk down!

Took bus from centre of town and then cable car to top. Lovely walks and the view of the town and lake was incredible.

We visited This mountain twice. There are many options to navigating your way to the top that include cable cars, chair lifts and walking. Worth the time.

Traveled as a family with a toddler. The cable car is quite accessible with strollers as well.
Design is sleek!( it's by posche). Ascent is steep which is cool for young kids!
Views of Lake Zell from the top are beautiful!
