The Hochalmbahnen Lift Co.
Our 6-passenger gondola carries you in just a few minutes either to the mid-station (Heimalm) or the summit station (Hochalm). These stations serve as the starting point for many enjoyable hikes with glorious panoramic views of the Goldberg Group, Grossglockner, Niedere Tauern, Steinernes Meer, Hochkönig and Dachstein.
Hochalm mountain station is your destination when you wish to visit the bird-of-prey station. You can then experience up-close these otherwise so shy owls and other birds of prey against the imposing backdrop of Hohe Tauern National Park. Peter Krizan, a professional falconer, provides complete explanations about the behaviors and habits of these animals, many of which are actually endangered species.
“Tilly’s Forest Path” offers a wonderful experience for the whole family. Children and adults are exposed to information and fascinating facts about the alpine world of animals and plants, through play and many other activities .
