Ride the historic cable car! Feb 15, 2017
A *must do* as well as a convenient mode of transportation is the cable car from Oberwiesenthal to the top of Mt. Fichtelberg (1214 m). It was opened in 1924 as the first of that kind in Germany. Elevation difference is 303 m, the cable car takes close to 4 minutes for the 1175 m long ride. Up to 44 passengers are transported in each of the two cabins (one up, the other down) at once. This meant looong lines for many years, until a Quad chair-lift was built parallel to it some years ago.

The cable car is in revision for two weeks every year in April and November, otherwise in operation all year round 9 - 17 h. It's only a five minutes walk from the train station or the Markt square to the cable car.

Tickets are 7 Euro for a single ride, 9 Euro for a round trip (2017) for adults. Reductions for seniors, guests staying in Oberwiesenthal, students, children etc. Ski passes (winter) are valid for unlimited use of the cable car. The Erzgebirgscard covers the cable car, too.

Sounds like this one is cheaper than most cable cars I know in Austria.
