Overview

SUMMER SEASON 2018 (27.4.-12.11.2018) Since 1959, Katrin cable car has brought a range of visitors to the summit. Enjoy a charming 15-minute drive to more than 1,400 m above sea level with spectacular views! There are NUMEROUS PANORAMA ROUTES on mount katrin. The network of the circular walk extends from lovely Feuer- and Rosenkogerl westwards to the imperial Katrin summit and further to the beautiful Elferkogel, followed by the romantic Hainzen and the mighty Rosskopf - always accompanied by the impressive mountain scenery of the Salzkammergut that will inspire you. Multi-generation VIA FERRATA: Apart from fun and action for those who want to be active, the promising fixed rope route (suitable for families) offers a fabulous view of the most beautiful lakes of the Salzkammergut region. As highlight, the ascent ends at the majestic cross on the summit of Mount Katrin.

Expensive: €98 for a family of 4. Quite a long ride to the top but worth it. Beautiful views make it worthwhile. The kids enjoyed it.

Although a tad expensive the cable car is a brilliant way to go up to the top of Katrin as you see the stunning Austrian landscape as you go up. Will mention though that if it’s hot it can get a bit uncomfortable!

15 minutes to the top for great views and some nice walking. Don't underestimate how hard the walk down is though - if in doubt, get the cable car down too!
