Restaurant and cable car closed until May 2021 due to construction activities.
Warning operations closed!
The cable car and revolving restaurant will be closed from now on until May 2021 due to construction work.
The trailsection Kastensattel - Hoher Kasten will be closed from Nov 4 2020 until spring 2021. Due to rock excavation and blasting work, there is a very high risk of rockfall on this section.
We thank all our guests for their loyalty in 2020 and look forward to being there for you again from May 2021.
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:

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.
