The Mayrhofen mountain cableways will get you to the right mountain destination – comfortably, reliably, fast.
Special notes: SUMMER
Penken: ascend via the new “3S Penkenbahn” and the “Kombibahn Penken”. Activities offered range from the “Funsportstation” at the reservoir pond, through 21 individual bicycle trails, to hiking routes for every performance level. The panoramic circuit trail is something for the whole family!
Ahorn: The “Mountain of Delights” is best accessed via the Ahornbahn – the biggest gondola cableway in all of Austria! Many of the mountain‘s countless feel-good destinations are conveniently connectedby the “Circuit of Delights”, including the “Sinnespfad” (“Path of the Senses”) and the Ahorn falconry stage. There, from June through October, spectacular falconry shows are performed in front of a gasping audience – every day except Fridays, starting at 2pm! For those who can‘t get enough of those majestic birds, every Wednesday, there‘s the popular “Falkner-Schnuppern”, where professional falconers grant insight into their trade and the lives of their avian “foster children”. (Reservation required!) The “Sinnesspiele Nature Experience Center” gives little and not-so-little explorers the opportunity to marvel at the many world records nature holds! The ideal conclusion for a day full of fascinating views & insights, then, is to stop off at the new, magnificent sun terrace of the “Café-Bistro Freiraum”.
