Fun on Mount Ahorn

The Ahorn Cable Car and Eagle's Stage

Austria's largest cable car, the Ahorn, can transport its passengers up the mountain in just a few minutes. Explore the Ahorn Plateau at 2,000m with a gentle walk, stopping at the four viewing platforms to take in the truly incredible views. The villages below look tiny, whilst the surrounding mountains are imposing and magnificent. Start your adventure by following the buggy-friendly "Leisure Trail". This path leads you along the babbling Ahorn stream, where children will be thrilled by the many water-themed play areas.

The four viewing platforms - Adlerblick, Ziller Valley, Stilluptal or Filzenalm - invite you to sit back and relax as you take in the breathtaking views that you will remember back home. And, once you have worked up an appetite, head to the sun terraces of the nearest mountain restaurant to enjoy a small snack or a hearty meal.

In the afternoon, "Steppi" the eagle, "Lanny" the female buzzard, "Billi" and "Virginia" the owls, "Hansi" the falcon, and buzzards "Ashok" and "Laika" are waiting to amaze you with their aerobatics at Europe's highest altitude birds of prey display. Be prepared to feel the wind under their wings as these majestic birds to swoop just above your head!

Before you return to the valley, don't forget to leave some time to unwind at the beautiful Lake Ahorn.
