One of the most popular paths to the Pfänder runs in 1:45 h over the steep "Gschlief". It starts at the valley station of the Pfänderbahn. In the opposite direction it is less sweaty and with a view of the lake.


If you want to start at the mountain station, choose the easy-to-walk cheese nature trail, which leads past small farm stores and catered rest stops. Illustrated panels explain interesting facts about the production of Vorarlberg cheese. Depending on the variant, between 3 and 4 ½ hours are to be planned. The five-hour "Three One Thousanders Hike" from the Pfänder to the Hochberg, Hirschberg and back is more mountainous.

And for those who want to shorten the way to our trails a little.


Daily from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., travel time 6 minutes.
Every full and half hour, intermediate rides for 10 or more people every 15 minutes.

The Pfänderbahn was certified as the "Best Austrian Summer Mountain Lift" by the Austrian Cable Car Association after a comprehensive quality control. The seal of quality vouches for a high-quality offer on the mountain.
