Due to unfavorable weather conditions, the planned technical revision of the Hammetschwand Lift was delayed. Re-opening 18th June 2016 from 9.30 a.m. until 11.30 a.m. and from 12.00 p.m. until 5.30 p.m.
Located at an altitude of 1,132 metres, the Hammetschwand Lift is the highest outdoor elevator in Europe. Already 105 years ago, the trip on board this lift was taking the breath away from its first passengers. Today, the lift makes the 152-metre vertical run in less than a minute, and the excitement of speeding so quickly skyward is exceeded only by the thrill of taking in the spectacular view.
