Hochwurzen summit lift

Spacious 10 man cabins made of glass provide clear views of the Dachstein Massif. The summit lift takes you comfortably to the peak and straight to the start of the 7km long summer sled run with mountain go-karts and countless hiking routes.

The first summer sledding lift in the world on the Hochwurzen

Guests can enjoy the exhilaration of reaching the summit quite comfortably thanks to the Hochwurzen summit lift.

The 10 man cabin lift also provides outstanding views of the Dachstein Massif.

Fancy heading back down into the valley on a mountain go-kart or even a summer sled?

Both are possible on Hochwurzen!
