Hiking paradise Eggalmbahnen
Eggalm – Heaven on the Mountain
It is with good reason that this slogan was given to the Eggalmbahnen cable cars many years ago, because there is nothing nicer than spending summer days relaxing here, or enjoying some sporting fun in the fresh mountain air. The gondola lift whisks you from Lanersbach to Eggalm in only 8 minutes, where you are greeted by a panorama of incredible beauty, with wrap-round views of the Zillertal and Tux Alps. The top station of the Eggalm lifts is also the ideal starting point for many lovely walks, surrounded by bubbling alpine streams and beautiful summer meadows.
The top station of the lifts is at 2,000 metres above sea level, making an ascent of the Grübelspitze Peak that little but easier, or a hike around the beautiful crystal clear waters of Lake Torsee, with the surrounding peaks reflected enchantingly in its surface. Quaint alpine huts are the perfect place to stop for refreshments after a successful mountain hike.
Children are also well catered for; the Eggalm Kinder Rally features a few tricky puzzles and children just love the bouldering wall at the top station of the lifts. The Eggalmbahn cable car transports you to heaven on the mountain from the end of June to mid-October!
