Start your mountain adventure with a suitably thrilling journey, which is something of a mini-adventure in itself. The Hoher Kasten cableway whisks passengers up to the summit in just eight minutes, during which time you’ll pass over lush, green meadows as you begin to spy snow-tipped peaks all around you, arriving at 1,794 metres-above-sea-level before you know it. Get your camera ready before you board the cable car, as you won’t want to miss a moment of this ride. And as a great bonus for families, children up to 15 can travel on the cable car for free when accompanied by an adult.
