    be prepared to walk...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Vorteilscard 26

    by globetrott Updated Mar 18, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you don't have a Eurail,Interrail-ticket etc. yet and intend to go by train from Vienna or Tirol to Salzburg, Graz, Hallstatt etc - and when you are still under 26 years of age it makes sense to buy a "VORTEILScard 26" !
    It is a ticket that you will get at any train-station. You pay 19,90 Euros, bring a passport-pic and will first get an interim-paper ticket, later by mail you get something looking like a credit card. Already the paper ticket entitles you to buy and use tickets for half-fare right away!!
    On the distance Vienna-Salzburg you will save around 19,90 Euros one-way already !! because the ordinary ticket is 39,80.
    This ticket makes sense for any tourist under 26 years planning to travel by train in Austria!!
    In case that you have no permanent address in Austria, where they could send the final ticket, give them your hotel address, a friends-address etc. - it will take several weeks until you get the final card, BUT you have to have an address ready, otherwise the counter might refuse to sell that ticket.
    That ticket is valid for 365 days and you might even use it again in your next vacation in Austria.
    -------------------------------------------
    On the ÖBB-webpage you will also find a "Vorteilscard Family / Familie" , BUT that will work ONLY for families who are registered IN Austria, so this will NOT work for foreigners who dont live permanently in Austria !!!
    All the other Vorteilscards are available for foreigners as well !

    new 3S ropeway in the skiing season

    by Trekki Updated Nov 26, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    (quote - from website)
    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

    by PetraG Written Feb 18, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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 buses per day from Kitzbühel train station to Lienz train station, about 1.50 hours. Change in Mittersill if you want to go to Krimml Waterfalls (by train).

    Not for the faint of heart

    by phred1910 Written Jan 26, 2003

    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.

    Up, up, up....
