Lake Gelmer circular hiking trail

Ride on Europe’s steepest open funicular up to the turquoise waters of Lake Gelmer and soak up the unique atmosphere.

Board the Gelmer funicular and rattle your way (in reverse!) up to the glistening mountain lake. On the two-hour mountain hike around Lake Gelmer, you will get to discover the high alpine mountain environment from a wide variety of perspectives. Primordial streams and huge rocky slabs adorn the lake, inviting you to rest up and linger for a while.
