A modern self service place, convenient for the Eiberg lifts and the Osthangbahn back to Scheffau. Tea and fruit tea, 2€; Breze, 1€20. We call them pretzels in English, and they have shrunk into cocktail size and gone crispy. But this is the Austrian original, the size of your hand - salty and satisfying, goes well with beer.
The Marchental is a handy refuge in a whiteout; and you can take the heated, covered Osthangbahn lift back up to Brandstadl if conditions stay poor. Which is probably what we should have done instead of feeling our way along to the Sudhangbahn. Most of the way its a road with enough fir trees to give a bit of contrast, until you reach the Sudhang itself, and a'll the trees vanish in the mist. Fortunately the lift is only a little further on and down.
