Incredible views from 3.440 m
The Pitztal glacier closes the valley of Pitztal. Taking the glacier express, you climb up to a level of 2.840 m. From this point, the new cable car Wildspitzbahn will take you to the highest Café in Austria on 3.440 m. The highest mountain of the Tyrolean mountain range, the Wildspitze (3.774 m), is almost within reach. Free guided tours and the glacier restaurant complete what the glacier has to offer.

A fascinating mountain lake at 2.232 m above sea level
Rifflsee (Lake Riffl) is the highest mountain lake in Austria. The cable railway company decided to use its name as their own. The ski lift facilities of the Rifflsee Cable Railways allow visitors to reach a large number of easy to medium difficulty mountain trails.
The starting point is the village of Mandarfen (at 1.682 m) at the far end of the Pitztal where there is also a car park. The gondolas of the Rifflseebahn comfortably and effortlessly take you to 2.300 m above sea level, where all the hiking tours start.
The top terminal, together with the Sunna Alm restaurant, has a panoramic sun terrace for your convenience. The restaurant buildings were constructed with a view to sustainable tourism architecture. The building is a ‘passive’ (ultra-low energy) house, utilising solar technology and geothermal energy.
