Zwölferhorn Cable Car

St. Gilgen, Salzburg, Österreich
  • All weather
  • Suitable for groups
  • Suitable for pushchairs

A mountain with lots of possibilities: hiking, paragliding, mountain biking. The new gondolas offer pleasant comfort, a fantastic view and adequate space. Therefore the Zwölferhorn is barrier-free and suitable for families with children. In just 10.48 minutes, the new cable car conquers the 908 meters of altitude to the top of St. Gilgen's backyard mountain.

The struts are in place, the rope has been split, and the mountain and the valley stations are about to be completed. As usual and nevertheless brand new, they will regularly leave the top modern and gently embedded valley station - the 14 red and 14 yellow gondolas of the Zwölferhorn cable car. More glass, more space, but in a familiar colors.
The new valley station is also home of the Zwölfer Shop, which allows guests to take a piece of the Zwölferhorn with them at home. A self-service establishment of the Sparkasse completes the service concept of the new valley station and will probably save the one or another hut visit on the mountain in the future.
Relax and enjoy in the new mountain restaurant "Das Zwölfer" with Harald Sigl, who will be serving refreshing drinks, coffee and fresh, simple dishes in his panorama restaurant at the same time as the cablecar is being opened. Thanks to the covered terrace, there are no limits to enjoyment even in winter.

Open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
