Summer cable cars in the Bregenzerwald - from the bottom of the valley to the summit

The cable cars allow easy access to a wide range of activities and offer a wonderful panorama. From leisurely family hikes to alpine summit tours at altitudes of 1000 to 2600 meters, which also profit from the health benefits of altitude training. In this diverse environment there is something for everyone to make your holiday in the Bregenzerwald unforgettable.

Damülser cable cars

The Damüls Uga Express cable cars take hikers from Damüls at 1,800 meters above sea level to the hiking area in five minutes. Various hikes to alpine huts or peaks such as Kanisfluh and Damülser Mittagspitze start here, with views as far as the Silvretta. Mountain bikers will find the best conditions with signposted tours and places to stop for refreshments. The 10.5 km long Damüls circular tour with summit trails begins at the Uga-Express mountain station. In about an hour you reach the Hochblanken, then you hike 45 minutes on the mountain ridge at an altitude of about 2,000 m to the Ragazer Blanken summit. The descent leads over the Sünser Joch to the Oberdamülser Alpe and Damüls. The tour takes about 3.5 hours in total. Ideal for guests of the Damüls Apartments.
