In the end, were happy in Belchen Seilbahn. For around 40€ (a family ticket), we spent time for sight seeing and skiing around from 12.00-17.00. The last lift is usually at 16.30 but we were lucky so many visitors at the day and they extended...More

You can take the local bus to Belchen, purchase round trip gondola tickets. Enjoy the smooth and scenic ride to the top where there are plenty of vistas for photos, a small gift shop and good restaurant with 360 degree windows for your enjoyment.
