Expensive: €98 for a family of 4. Quite a long ride to the top but worth it. Beautiful views make it worthwhile. The kids enjoyed it.

Although a tad expensive the cable car is a brilliant way to go up to the top of Katrin as you see the stunning Austrian landscape as you go up. Will mention though that if it’s hot it can get a bit uncomfortable!
