1. Marvel at the view

Cable cars are not only a means of transport. A ride in the spacious gondolas is an experience in itself. Our summer mountain railways take you to the starting point for leisurely hikes and challenging mountain tours. Or you can skip the hike and come directly to one of the numerous huts for a snack.

Tip: Ever marvel at three countries at the same time? The geo-viewing platform of the Walmedingerhorn cable car offers a breathtaking view of the 3-country-panorama of Germany-Austria-Switzerland.

2. Climb mountains

4. Experience pure adventure

Tearing waterfalls that plunge down stony gorges - and you are right in the middle of it. Not possible, you think? Action, action and even more action is what canyoning is all about. You use the landscape for your own pleasure. Swims, jumps and natural slides - it's all there for the perfect water fun. With a protective wetsuit the water is not cold at all. ?

8. Think outside the box...or plate

Delicious food is all good, but where do the delicacies  on your plate come from? The cycle for regional dishes already starts with the producer and the farmers.  And our Gourmet Producers can explain how the cheese goes into the famous Käsknöpfle or honey goes on bread,.
