Cable car and revolving restaurant open from 8am to 5pm
Attention traffic diversion from Monday to Friday
From Tuesday, April 11, 2023, to Friday, July 7, 2023, Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., access to the valley station Hoher Kasten for all motorized traffic is only possible via Weissbad. The reason for this is the closure of the Chlustobel bridge due to renovation work. The detour will be signalized in Steinegg and in Brülisau.

Barrier-free access to tourist attractions – this requirement is becoming increasingly important these days. We show you that you can enjoy Hoher Kasten to the fullest in spite of a disability:
Information to enter into the satellite navigation system
Marked disabled parking spaces are located directly at the entrance to the lower terminus in Brülisau.
Accessibility to the summit
The Hoher Kasten Cableway is fully accessible. For people with mobility difficulties, there is a wheelchair-accessible entrance at the lower terminus and a wheelchair lift at the mountain terminus. The Revolving Restaurant has a passenger lift that transports you from one floor to another. Cableway and Revolving Restaurant staff will be happy to provide help on site.
With the Europa Rundweg Circular Trail, you can easily enjoy the breathtaking panorama on the summit. In the summer months you can also marvel at Alpine plants in the Alpine Garden, which has been laid out along the Europa Rundweg Circular Trail. In winter, after heavy snowfall, the Europa Rundweg Circular Trail only offers limited access by foot or by vehicle.
The “Disabled Passenger’s ID Card” (Switzerland) and the handicap card marked “B” (Germany) give travellers with reduced mobility (wheelchair users, walking impaired, visually impaired, hearing impaired, and mentally disabled) the opportunity to take an accompanying carer, a guide dog, or both, free of charge. Disabled travellers themselves ride at the normal rate. Please have your ID ready at the ticket office.
