Just one ticket gives you access to 13 cable cars, six unique experience worlds, the "Naturerlebnis Kaisergebirge", well signposted hiking paths, the KaiserJet and 23 bonus partners. The Mountain Experience-Card is available from the SkiWelt, the Kaiserlift or Stadtwerke Kufstein.

How long does the lift ride take? It takes approx. 15 minutes to the middle station, and the Brentenjoch top station is reached in approx. 30 minutes. In the middle station you have to change.
Is my child allowed to ride alone on the Kaiserlift? From a height of 115 cm children may travel alone on the lift, the age is not relevant. Smaller children can sit on the lap of an adult. The lift staff makes the final decision about whether a visitor is "fit to ride".

There are toilets at the bottom and middle stations.
Does the lift operate in bad weather too? The lift operates from May 1st to October 31st, daily from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. An exception to this is when severe thunderstorms are forecast. In case of doubt you can find out more at 05372 6930-363.

Why does the lift sometimes stop? Safety is of utmost importance to us. To ensure that visitors can get on and off the Kaiserlift safely it is sometimes stopped. The ride will continue after a couple of seconds. If the lift stops for a longer period please stay calm and listen to the loudspeaker announcements.
Is it possible for the lift to go more slowly when getting on and off? Yes. Please inform the lift staff before you get on. The speed of the lift will be reduced. As an indication that you would like assistance when getting off, your seat will be marked with a small board.
Feel the uniqueness The impressive Kaiser mountain range is the backdrop for hiking on the high plateau from Brentenjoch to the Steinberg Alpine pastures. Starting at 1,256 meters is a habitat that has been registered as a nature reserve since 1963. Over the centuries, nature and the native plant world has formed a symbiotic relationship with Alpine farming and its animals. Around 1,000 kilometres of well-signposted hiking paths await hikers and passionate mountaineers in the Kaiser Mountains nature experience; the Tyrolean Eagle Walk also passes through this area. The Kaiserlift makes it possible for not quite so sporty people to enjoy unforgettable experiences and views in the mountains.

Power and awareness places Eagle's View This power place is directly next to the top station. When you look off into the distance through the viscope you will see the names of the mountains at the same time: the telescope will display the names of peaks and inns.
Ridge Walk The Hocheck ridge is located between Steinberg and Walleralm. The sheltered spiral invites hikers to take a cosy rest. A viscope provides great views that bring hikers closer to the mountain peaks.
Freedom - Space - Time The layout of this place is a spiral. Here your view is focused on the northern face of the Wilder Kaiser – a natural jewel that is worth exploring. Hikers can also enjoy fantastic views of the imposing Kaiser Mountains from here.
Sky View At Gamskogel there is a magical place to watch the sky and the clouds. The spiral-shaped larch wood bench lets you lie looking in any direction you want, or sit inside, depending on the sun and your mood.
The Kufstein Kaiserlift takes nature-lovers to the high plateau of the Steinberg Alpine pastures. The new single-seat chair lift is not only the first step to get to the mountains easily, but also a pleasantly slow form of transport which lets you enjoy some solitude.
Alm Pharmacy Discover the highest alm pharmacy in Austria. Four modules allow interactive experiencing of old pharmacy handcraft and herbal knowledge. A number of local herbs and their healing effects are presented in text and pictures, and some of the aromas will be familiar.
Source of Life You will find this power place on a hike along forestry roads between the middle and top stations. At the Riegen fountain you draw energy from the power of water.
