"Hornbahn Hindelang"

Description

The "Hornbahn Hindelang" is located on the southern outskirt of the municipality of Bad Hindelang in the Allgäu. The weather-protected cabins of the "Hornbahn Hindelang" take you comfortably and safely to the mountain station at 1,320 m above sea level. The panorama gondolas offer enough space for up to 8 people and can easily carry pushchairs and wheelchairs. When getting on and off, the track is stopped, if necessary, and a helping hand from the staff is of course guaranteed. The mountain guesthouse offers dishes of Bavarian cuisine as well as a fantastic view from the terrace at ground level or the glazed winter garden. Musical events (e.g. Alphorn) in summer as well as the circular hiking trail to the viewpoint "Burgschrofen" belong to the special features of the "Hornbahn Hindelang".
