The Flexenbahn will connect Arlberg ski areas

The Flexenbahn opens in winter 2016/2017

The Flexenbahn will connect Arlberg ski areas

The circle is complete – in winter 2016 / 17, the Flexenbahn cableway will be opening! The new cableway will connect the Arlberg with Lech, Zürs, Stuben, St. Christoph, St. Anton and Schröcken Warth, forming Austria’s largest continuous ski resort with 87 railways and lifts and 305 km of ski pistes.

Ever since the Middle Ages, there has been a route via the Flexen Pass linking the towns of Zürs and Stuben. A great deal has changed since then and the new Flexenbahn cableway will mark another chapter in the Arlberg’s history.

The first stage in summer 2015 involved rebuilding the Übungsbahn Zürs and this will be followed by the redevelopment of the Trittkopfbahnen I and II in Zürs and the new Albonabahn II in Stuben. The new Flexenbahn will be built at the same time. The total invested is around 45 million euros.

Protecting nature

No new ski pistes will be built and so the beauty of the landscapes will be protected. The operation of the Flexenbahn will reduce the number of bus journeys by approx. 120 per day. The journey time is also shorter, depending on the arrival route.
