Cable car museum Ischgl

The cable car museum of the Silvrettaseilbahn AG cable car company is located directly next to the entrance of the town’s tunnel, at the centre of Ischgl. History needs a fresh coat of paint once in a while, too. That’s why the small but mighty museum was completely renovated and refurnished in 2009.

Since then, it opens its doors to holiday guests and locals every Wednesday from 16:00 to 19:00 (during summe and winter season) – and takes them on a journey back in time.

Everything but old hat! A journey back into the past of cable car technology will impress both you and your children.
