Sunrise Gondola on Mount Ahorn

Book your Sunrise Gondola Ticket here!

Every Thursday from 2 July, between 05:00 and 06:30 a.m., the Ahornbahn, Austria’s largest gondola, takes early birds up to the Ahorn Plateau, where they can enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the Zillertal viewing platform over a nice cup of hot tea. As you watch the sun’s rays rise above the peaks of the Zillertal Alps and slowly turn from bluish purple to bright pink to warm gold, you’ll realize that getting up so early was well worth the effort. This fascinating spectacle of nature briefly gives a mystical aura to the mountains of Mayrhofen. There’s no better way to start the day!

Our tip for all mountaineers: Start your hike to the Ahornspitze or the Aschaffenburger Höhenweg early in the morning!

  • On the Zillertal viewing platform a self-service tea buffet is waiting for you.

  • Clothing: We recommend sturdy shoes and a jacket or jumper, as the temperatures on the mountain can be quite low early in the morning.

  • Some mountain restaurants offer a hearty breakfast - bookable directly on

  • In order to make it easier to keep the safety distance, the maximum number of people permitted in the cable car cabins is reduced to 50% of the regular transport capacity. This means the Ahornbahn currently offers room for 80 people, which could lead to longer waiting times. Please observe the legal provisions regarding protective masks.
