Arrival to the Mountain Hotel

Location & arrival

The journey - a special experience for young and old. From the valley station you continue with the gondola, the luggage is already stowed in the cargo gondola. After a few minutes you see nothing but the sky and the mountains all around - and then, the mountain hotel is enthroned at the end of the cable car route.

Getting there:

The mountain hotel Rudolfshütte at 2,315 m above sea level is located near Uttendorf in the Salzburg region, approx. 35 km from Zell am See.

From the valley station of the Weißsee Gletscherbahn (car parking), the Enzingerboden, you can reach the mountain station in about 20 minutes with the 6-person cable car via the middle station. From there, a short tunnel leads directly to the Berghotel Rudolfshütte.

The Weißsee glacier lifts are open daily in summer during the opening hours of the Rudolfshütte from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and in winter from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
