    In summer the Bochumerhütte is reached from a car park which is 30 minutes walk away. It’s steep, and not easy carrying a full rucksack with everything you’ll need for a couple of days (including food for lunch when on hikes), especially when it’s 25°.

    That car park is not accessible in winter, and then it’s a 2 hour walk from the lower car park.

    You reach both car parks by turning left as you drive south on the road out of Kitzbühel. The junction is just south of Aurach.

    This thing is incredible !!! It spans 3,7 km above a valley and is an incredible effort of ropeway building.
    The following text is from the website, and the picture (also from the website) shows the direction of the ropeway.

    3S Ropeway

    Welcome to the superlative ropeway

    By building the most spectacular tricable loop ropeway in the world Kitzbühel has exceeded expectations!

    Kitzbühel is the number 1 winter sports destination for more than 1 mill. people each year. At the beginning of the winter season 2004/05 the long cherished vision to link the two ski areas of Hahnenkamm/Pengelstein and Jochberg/Resterhöhe via a ropeway became a reality at last.

    By inaugurating the world's most spectacular tricable loop ropeway in December 2004, Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel, Austria's largest ropeway company, added a whole new dimension to winter delights

    This unique project constitutes the 'artery' of the interconnected Kitzbühel ski areas. The set goal to link the ski areas and, in doing so, to make the ski safari skiable in both directions has been finally achieved with the new 3S ropeway.

    The latest developments in ropeway engineering have made it possible to span the valley in its entire width. The combination of gigantic clearance (up to 400 metres) above the Saukasergraben valley and enormous span (about 2500 metres from tower to tower) make this new ropeway so special. Besides the valley and mountain stations featuring one supporting tower each, only one intermediate tower was necessary in order to span the 3.7 kilometres. For this gigantic project, the latest technology of Doppelmayr, a partner of the Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel for many years, came into operation.

    The 24 gondolas (with a maximum carrier capacity of up to 30 persons) are supported by two track ropes ¯ like on rails ¯ and drawn by a haul rope. This makes it possible to transport up to 4,200 winter sports aficionados per hour.

    Romantic ride through the snow

    horse carriage

    A nice and romantic way to explore the city is to have a ride in a FIAKER (that's what the horse-carriages are called in Austria). A one hour-ride costs about 15 EURO per person. Fantastic especially in winter to have romantic and relaxed ride through the snowy landscape with a beloved person.

    There are 5 bues per day from Lienz train station to Kitzbühel train station, about 1.50 hours. Change bus in Mittersill if you want to go to Krimml Waterfalls.

    Not for the faint of heart

    Up, up, up....

    Take the tram to the top of the Hahnenkamm. It costs about 10 Euro, but is free with a ski pass. You get on at the main ski shop in town.
