Bergbahn Oberlech

Summer Cable Cars in Lech Zürs

Float gently above the valley floor with the Lech Zürs cable cars and in no time at all arrive in the heart of Arlberg’s mountains featuring unique panoramic hiking trails.

6 cable cars - one card

In summer, we boast a total of five cable cars and lifts so that our guests are spoilt for choice: On one side, float up to the panoramic mountain with the Rüfikopf cable car. On the other side, check out the gentle flowery meadows on the adventure mountain, which is accessible via the Bergbahn Oberlech and Petersbodenbahn cable cars. In Zürs, the Seekopfbahn cable car is your gateway to the natural mountain landscape of Zürsersee lake. Meanwhile, in Warth, the Steffisalp-Express opens up fantastic hiking opportunities in the Tannberg mountains. Best of all, all cable cars and lifts are included with the Lech Card. All aboard for adventure! 

Rüfikopf cable car

In just a few minutes, the Rüfikopf cable car will transport you up to the panorama restaurant at an altitude of 2,350 m. Once up high, enjoy an amazing view over the summer holiday resort of Lech am Arlberg and the Tannberg hiking region above Oberlech. The mountain station of the Rüfikopf cable car is the perfect starting point for the first stage of the Green Ring as well as for the Geoweg Rüfikopf trail, where you will discover a part of Earth’s history.
