Lifts & cable cars in Nassfeld

Take the easy way into the mountains!

The modern cable cars and lifts in Nassfeld mean that it could not be easier to travel into the Carnic Alps during the warm summer months. Holidaymakers and daytrippers can use the Millennium Express cable car, the Gartnerkofel and the Madritschen chairlift to travel up into the mountains and look down on Carinthia's beautiful lakes and valleys from above as they breathe in the fresh air. Those wishing to embark on a trip to Italy can take the cable car up and walk just a few kilometres over the border to the village of Pontebba.
