A cable car then takes you further up the mountain to an altitude of 1905 metres above sea level, where views stretch over the Middle Inn Valley, the Stubai and Zillertal Valley Alps and the Wipptal Valley over the Italian border. If you wish to venture even higher, you can join the cable car to the Hafelekar, the highest viewpoint at 2256 metres.

Today it is a fashionable and prosperous winter resort. After free time we travel to the town of Mittersill to join the Pinzgau train for a nostalgic ride to Zell am See.
