The ride was a bit shaky and the climb was a bit scary. However the views at the top made it all worthwhile. Even the hike around the crater, though it looked daunting and steep, so long as you take your time, is doable. The...More

We visited as a daytrip from Munich. Since it is an easy ride from Munich and the walk fairly short from the train station to the gondola I chose this experience over the Zugspitze. Also the lower admission for a family of 4 was an...More

Enjoyed this gondola ride up to the top of the mountain. Very steady ride and a wonderful viewing station w/restaurant at the top.

At first, we didn't know what to expect. We heard about this place and knew we had to go. We arrived and to our surprise it was cash-only. Thank goodness we had enough on us as it wasn't cheap. The cable car was cool but...More

This is a terrific experience, well worth the cost, especially on a nice day when you can see for miles and miles. The views of mountain range after mountain range are incredible. Take your time, hike to the top, drink it in. The Gastatte (restaurant)...More

TIP-arrive in the morning to take the cable car to the top. There were many people trying to go up at lunchtime, so we came back the next day. Once at the top one can walk around the crater, be sure to allow time to...More
