summer cable car to the Schatzberg in auffach

Schatzberg cable car Wildschönau

The Schatzberg cable car takes you to the mountain with the same name. The mid station lies at a height of 1300 m and the top station at 1780 m. The Schatzberg cable car is closed in summer 2017 for renovation!

Renovation of the Schatzberg cable car summer 2017

Project: New cable car on the Schatzberg Mountain

A new cable car is being built in time for the winter 2017/2018 ski season. An 8-man gondola lift will be added to the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau palette. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the necessary building works the Schatzberg cable car will be closed in summer 2017.

The old Schatzberg gondola is to be replaced in summer 2017 by a state-of-the-art 8 man gondola. From the start of the winter ski season 2017/18 a massive 2.650 people (in comparison to 1600 now) an hour will be transported in comfort to the top of the mountain.

Summer cable cars in Tirol

The Schatzberg cable car brings walkers and sightseers to the peak of the same name. In takes just 14 minutes from the village centre to the tops. From here there are numerous lovely walks.

For example the Gern peak and the Joel Spitze. The easy circular trail goes to the reservoir above the Gern Alm. At the cross on the mountain top you have an unforgettable view of the surrounding mountain ranges. The longer hike to the Lämpersberg is for experienced walkers.

Tips for mountain bikers: The mountain top isn’t just for hikers. A bike tour from Thierbach ends on the Schatzberg Moutain and crosses one of the Tirol Bike Safari trails.

Family tips and restaurants on the Schatzberg

The Schatzberg is a family mountain. The restaurants at the top and middle stations cater for families with children.

From the mountain to the middle station an easy walk meanders downhill and is even suitable for prams – with good suspension! The kids can cool down at the Koglmoos paddling pool and the Schatzberg Alm and Gipfö Hit both have playgrounds right outside. The Wildschönau Dragon Club pays a visit to the Schatzberg for a treasure hunt once a week.
