Nebelhornbahn

Nebelhornbahn

mountain railway

Description

With its 400-peak view, the Nebelhorn offers a magnificent view. The valley station of the new 10-person cable car is easily accessible by car. You can't get any higher with a mountain railroad in the Allgäu. A wheelchair-accessible hiking trail at the Höfatsblick station, the adventurous Nordwandsteig at the summit and the Marktrestaurant are exciting destinations. 

The Nebelhornbahn offers handicapped-accessible parking. A wheelchair-accessible hiking trail leads to a panoramic vantage point. Wide accesses lead to sun terraces and wonderful viewing spots. Resting benches are located at particularly beautiful points in nature. There is also a WC for people with disabilities in the mountain station. The Nebelhorn market restaurant is located directly in the Höfatsblick mountain station with a large sun terrace and free sun loungers. The new summit restaurant offers a magnificent view.
