St. Martin im Kofel Cable Car
On the renovated cable car, which is an important means of transportation for the permanently inhabited mountain village at the old pilgrimage church, you can ride from Laces/Latsch (630 m) up the summit station (1,740 m) in just a few minutes. The chapel, which leans on a steep hillside, was not supposed to have any structural competition with an eye-catching cable car. In order not to interfere with the visual presence of the chapel, the summit station was built behind a high stone wall that set it apart from delightful surroundings. In order for it to stay as low as possible, the cable car mechanics are situated outdoors. As a result, you can watch its technical components functioning out of the glass cube into which the red gondola glides. Access to the ticket counter and waiting room is at the rear of the building, where there is also an adjoining café with magnificent views.
