  • Cable Car Up Fichtelberg - Kurort Oberwiesenthal

The easiest way to reach the summit of Fichtelberg is the cable car, named Schwebebahn , which departs from the edge of the town and takes you to the top in a few minutes. It runs from 9.00 to 17.00 at 15 minute intervals. Fares for adults: 4 ? one way, 6 ? return ticket. The ErzgebirgsCard is valid for one return trip.

The Schwebebahn was built in 1924 and claims to be the oldest cable car in Germany.

The gondolas are rather big and the trip is calm. Only when passing the pillars it sways a little. Even a person who is scared of heights like me can make it - however, it took me some courage and self-restraint (and I decided to walk back down).

There is also a chair lift which runs parallel to the cable car but there is NO way anyone would make me board that thing...
