Hochkar Bergbahnen (Aerial chair lift)

Mountain railroad / chair lift

This business is excellent…


Hiking with lots of views: the hiking paradise of Hochkar can be easily conquered via the Hochkar railway to the pre-summit. The reliable four-seater chair lift takes your guests up to 1,770 metres above sea level. The fantastic view of the surrounding mountains up to the Großglockner awaits you - and the most beautiful hiking routes for the whole family. Another highlight is the Hochkar 360° sky tour.

Hochkar 360° sky tour: Suspension Bridge Action & Best Views

From May to October the 360° sky tour starts at the Hochkar mountain station. The exciting route leads, among other things, over a 60 metre long suspension bridge, offers wonderful panoramic views over the entire Eastern Alps region - and invites you to Lower Austria's highest vantage point: At the top of the viewing platform, the dizzying depth of 120 metres is reached. The subsequent circular trail continues over the bridge and rock climb - with the best view of Gesäuse and Dachstein.

Further hiking tips for the Hochkar Alpine Resort

  • Idyllic mountain lake hike: From the upper Hochkar car park it takes about half an hour along a forest road to the mountain lake.
  • A gentle storm to the summit: After the ride on the Hochkar cable car, a short hiking trail leads from the mountain station to the Hochkar summit (1,808 metres).
  • Variable circular walks: The Hochkar can be hiked in several variations from the upper Hochkar car park - with different walking times of two to four hours.
