I enjoyed this experience, especially the wanking. Although I did get some funny looks. I wonder why. With a name like that it made sense.

We went up past the mittel station. Hard going on the second part but well worth it. Too many people at the top so headed down by cable car to have beer in peace

The name gave us all a giggle but the view was spectacular! The fresh air, cows and treking opportunities were fantastic and the cable car ride very enjoyable.

Hi Ciaran yes, its only allowed between 9am and 5pm weekdays. Any wanking outside this period is frowned upon by the locals. Hope that helps and enjoy Wank Mountain !!
