„Best Austrian summer lifts“

Since 2005 the Schmittenhöhebahn is a full member of the „Best Austrian summer lifts“. 100 completed quality criteria and a miscellaneous and varied offer for families led the Schmitten for certification as a "family mountain" in the context of the „Best Austrian summer lifts“. From summer 2015, the Schmitten is the first certified "Art and Culture mountain" in Austria.


So much to experience on the "family mountain"

The miscellaneous and varied offer for families led to the certification as a family mountain. You’ll float with the gondolas of Porsche design into a mountain panorama with over thirty 3,000 meter peaks. Along the high altitude promenade there are plenty of wood-carved sculptures, a marmot den and a beehive to admire. Agility stations along the hiking trail Schmidolin’s baptism of fire requires a lot of courage and skills. At Schmidolin’s rocket bike the kids follow Schmidolin’s track in one’s own course.


Austria's first "Art and Culture Mountain"

The Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See is not only a family mountain. Starting with summer 2015 it is also the first "Art and Culture Mountain" in Austria. 25 oversized sculptures by international artists can be seen along the trails and are also found in the “Art on the Mountain” folder. The „4 lakes art hike“ can be made individually or be booked as a guided tour.
