Visited with our four children aged 8 to 16 in June 2017 Short queues, exciting ride to the top and splendid views from there. There is a restaurant at the top, walks, play area and farm. Well worth a visit

Very efficient cable car service, with extra journeys scheduled to cope with busy times. Lovely view of the lake from the top, as well as the surrounding mountains.

I walked from the Hotel Germania to the Pfaenderbahn. I took the gondola up and casually walk down, stopping halfway for a lovely Radler!
