Ride comfortably up the mountain and back down to the valley with the Ahornbahn or the Penkenbahn!

The Ahornbahn, Austria’s largest cable car, takes you up to 2,000 meters above sea level on Leisure Mountain Ahorn in less than 7 minutes. The huge panorama windows offer fantastic views of Mayrhofen and the surrounding mountains. 

With its spacious cabins, panorama windows, Wi-Fi, and state-of-the-art bottom and mountain stations, the 3S Penkenbahn provides a whole new level of comfort. The Kombibahn Penken takes you up even higher.
