The cable car to Laber was one of my favorite memories of Germany - the mountain views were wonderful on top, had hiking trails, and there was a small restaurant with friendly staff. All in all a great experience

Old style cable car but the views are worth the trip. Nice little café at the top station. Also, nice touch that the trip was free with the hotel card.

We took the cable car up (cars date from 1950s/60s) - not the highest hill, but very steep and scenic - and walked back down. A very pleasant and enjoyable stroll mostly on good paths which took just an hour or two.
