GD10 Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen

Gondola lift with innovative operating concept
GD10 Gipfelbahn Hochwurzen

The Hochwurzen installation is a good example of how a gondola ropeway can perfectly meet the individual needs of summer and winter guests. The ropeway is multi-functional and flexible - it can be operated according to requirements: in winter, the passengers can be loaded quickly thanks to the detachable system. This guarantees a high transport capacity. During the summer, on the other hand, gondolas can be brought to a complete stop for 20 seconds twice while in the station, allowing pedestrians, cyclists, passengers with strollers and people with limited mobility to easily hop on and off. Along with the LEITNER DirectDrive, this innovative stop-and-go solution was a decisive factor in winning this contract. With this new technology, LEITNER ropeways is once again acknowledging the increasing importance of passenger comfort. The Hochwurzen gondola ropeway is fitted with the DirectDrive system.
