Hiking Tours

The 8-seater cable car will take you, in comfort, up to the Ehrwalder Alm, starting point for numerous hiking tours. The Ehrwalder Alm is 1.500m above sea level and lies at the centre of a beautiful nature area.

Please note:
This is mountain terrain and so requires mountain equipment. You also need to have a good head for heights, be sure footed and physically fit.
The information regarding hiking/travelling times as well as the difficulty gradings is guideline information only. For details of all the tours refer to relevant maps and hiking guides.
