- Hiking and Walking
Riding the Scheffau lift
On the ride up the Brandstl lift the fir trees were really laden with fir cones - I'd never seen so many, they must literally have been ready to drop. Don't forget to look at the scenery too as you glide effortlessly up.
Just set back from main road between Ellmau and Scheffau is the Brandstadlbahn Lift which takes you up the effortless way to a height of 1650m. At the top there are hiking options galore and mountain bikes can also be taken up if you want a more bumpier ride down!
The other lifts just nearby are the winter ski-lifts - this is a huge and popular ski-ing area in winter and both lifts are needed for the demand in winter to acces the mountains.
