cable cars for the schmittenhhebahn

Schmittenhöhebahn has a long history of more than four decades to carry millions of visitors in summers and winters from Zell am See, Austria, to Schmittenhöhe. But finally it’s a time to replace its two old red cabins with the latest generation of new cable cars. For that purpose, they partnered with Porsche Design Studio to develop the specifications for the fifth generation of Schmitten aerial tramway cabins thus giving the red cabins new Porsche looks. The cable cars make a captivating impression with their compelling combination of design and function. Two new cabins with the h/b/l: 270/270/430-510 cm dimensions and increased capacity of 45 persons per cabin; 30 persons with bar installed can travel to Schmittenhöhe (2000 meters above sea-level) in just eight minutes.

The other design specifications include a strong focus on safety and a comfortable ride, full-length glazing, extra-wide doors and the latest safety features. And for those fun loving people, one of the cabins has a mobile bar and high-end multimedia system installed so that it can be used for private parties and company events.
