The summer cable cars in the Kaunertal

On the go in summer

The Kaunertal's cable cars make it easy to experience Tyrolean mountains up to 3,113 m above sea level!

Ready to climb every mountain and ford every stream? Now's the time! The cable cars in the nature park and glacier region are safe means of transport year-round. And they also offer impressive panoramic views of the surrounding Ötztal Alps. 

When do the Karlesjoch cable car or the Falginjochbahn at Kaunertal Glacier and the Fendels railways run? What are the fares? The following overview provides an answer. Maybe you'll soon be joining us up here in the clouds!
New - Falginjochbahn up to 3.113 m.

Up high over the world at more than 3,113 m above sea level

Take a ride past the glacial landscape at 3,108 m above sea level on the Karlesjoch Cable Car and up to 3. 113 m with Falginjochbahn. Visitors can enjoy a spectacular view of the mountains in three countries from the accessible observation deck.

The valley station at 2,750 m above sea level is conveniently located on Kaunertal Glacier Road. Things stay cool here since you can find yourself surrounded by permanent ice just 300 m from the Glacier Restaurant right in the middle of summer. The walk-in glacial crevasse is a must on any holiday in the Kaunertal!

As is the ride to the mountain station: the observation deck there offers the most spectacular view of the Alps in three countries, including the Weißseespitze (3,518 m) and Weißkugel (3,712 m), both in Austria; Ortler in Italy; and the Bernina Group in Switzerland.

Other highlights includethe Glacier Gate, the tongue of the Gepatschferner, and the Seeles lakes (ideal for families!).

Fendels

The small mountain village of Fendels is picturesquely located on a high plateau at the entrance of the Kaunertal at 1,356 m above sea level. You can reach Fendels either on the well-developed road or comfortably with the gondola lift from Ried in the Oberinntal. Directly in the village is the valley station of the quad chairlift, which leads to the starting point for numerous hiking trails and mountain tours. Many trails and wide paths are even suitable for pushchairs.

A good tip: is the wildlife learning path in Fendels from the Sattelklause to the Fendler Alm. Clear signs teach a lot about the native animals of the mountains.

Also recommended: The hiking trail over the Fendler Alm to the serviced Anton Renk Hut. This then continues to the Stalanzer Alm (also serviced). In between is the natural spectacle of the 160 m high waterfall known as Fallender Bach. The whole hike takes 3 to 4 hours.

Or you can enjoy the sun on the sun terrace of the Sattelklause (open every day). In the meantime, the offspring can have fun in the directly adjacent Sattelboden adventure forest, with tree house, trampoline, swings, slides, water park, adventure path, and wading pool. New from summer 2020 - if you want to feel nature at every turn, do it on a barefoot forest bathing path.

Another highlight is the Wildbach Trail. This bike trail runs downhill from Fendels to the valley station of the Ried-Fendels cable car. You can then easily take the gondola lift back up. Action and fun are inevitable.

Fast downhill fun with mountain carts possible daily from 9:00 to 16:45 whenever the mountain lifts are running.
