summer lifts and cableways

Bergbahnen Mellau
The new Mellaubahn with large 10-seater gondolas leads from the village of Mellau to the 1400m high Rossstelle. Also bikes are transported. Many hiking and biking trails lead past pleasant alpine pastures: huts where fresh milk, cheeses and hearty snacks are served. Sometimes you can also look over the shoulder of the dairyman. The summit hike to the Kanisfluh is a highlight.
Seilbahn Bezau
From Bezau (5km away and easy to reach by bus) the modern pendulum cableway with 2 sections go up to the sunny slopes of the Niedere. There is a wide panorama and paragliders dance through the air. Enjoy the beautiful summit restaurant.  www.seilbahn-bezau.at
