New Hartkaiserbahn Ellmau

Brand new 10-seater gondola Hartkaiserbahn

After 44 years of service and carrying 34 million passengers, time is being called on the old Hartkaiser funicular railway. The old funicular railway is being replaced with an ultra-modern 10-seater extra-large gondola lift exploiting every aspect of the latest lift technology. The new Hartkaiserbahn will be one of the most modern cable cars in the world!

In less than nine minutes passengers will be transported from Ellmau to a height of 1,530 metres. Another completely new feature will be the possibility of boarding and alighting in the newly built intermediate station. The total length is more than 2.1 kilometres with an altitude gain of 703 metres.
