Panorama cable car between Ischgl and Samnaun

Twinliner Samnaun L1 in Samnaun

Ischgl / Samnaun was already a trendsetter in 1994 – at least, regarding cable car technology: the Twinliner between Ischgl and Samnaun is the first double-deck cable car in the world and offers an incredible view of the surrounding mountains. In summer and in winter! 

Guests get to enter the cable car on both levels and reach the Alp Trida saddle in Samnaun in Switzerland quickly and comfortably. The Twinliner Samnaun L1 is still one of the most innovative cable cars in the Alps – even today.
