New Hexenwasser Gondelbahn

Modern 10-seater gondola replaces over 30 year old 8-seater gondola

A modern 10-seater gondola will replace the current gondola from July 2020 on, which is now over 30 years old. The ride on the new Hexenwasser gondola will be "almost as beautiful as a flight on the witches’ broom".

The new Hexenwasser gondola will be comfortable, family-friendly and entertaining. In order to make riding a gondola a "real experience" - the Hexenwasser team creates something special: The ride on the new gondola will be staged as a flight on the witches’ broom. Each cabin is "bewitched" with its own motive and theme, so that the mountain adventure begins with entering the gondola. The working title "Hexophony" suggests that some surprises await the Hexenwasser guests musically. One thing is certain, the flight into Hexenwasser will be a true experience!
