Stunning scenic views, fresh mountain air and the unique mountain scenery of the Carnic, Gailtal and Julian Alps: One cable car and two lifts take holiday guests and day trippers up into the Summer World. Hikers, bikers, families and pleasure-seekers comfortably float up to higher altitudes and towards mountain joy in the Millennium Express cable car, the Gartnerkofel chairlift or the Madritschen chairlift.
