Dorfbahn Königsleiten I + II

The Salzburg side of the Zillertal Arena is also in top gear – a fact that can be clearly seen in the construction of the new Dorfbahn I + II in Königsleiten (8-seater monocable gondola). Covering a total distance of some 3 km in just 8 minutes, the new 2-section Dorfbahn gondola carries passengers from Königsleiten up to the top station at an elevation of 2,200 metres, just beneath the summit of the Königsleitenspitze. And, especially to pamper the bottoms of all those “ski bunnies” out there, the gondola is equipped with heated seating!
