Karren Cable Car

Karren Cable Car

Anyone wishing to fly high is right at home at Karren. This cable car brings its visitors to a height of 976 metres in less than 5 minutes. The panorama restaurant holds true to its promise, and you can enjoy a good meal and the view at the same time. Furthermore, Karren is a starting point for numerous hikes.

Escape the daily routine

Wonderful hike and walking routes, breathtaking view of the Rhein Valley – and evenings with a glittering sea of light from down below. 

The Karren is a very popular meeting place in this region. It is the starting point for many beautiful hiking routes. It is also very relaxing to stay at the top at an altitude of 976 meters whether to have a meal at the panorama restaurant or just enjoy the view. In just five minutes the cable car will take you above the roofs of the town giving you a beautiful view from the overlook / observation point of three countries during the day and night.

At the "Karren-Kante" you can enjoy an incredible view of the Rhein valley, the Swiss mountains, and Lake Constance. On the „Karren-Kante“ balcony, which is 12 m long and was constructed in 2016, visitors can feel nature up close and personal, virtually standing on thin air.

Opening hours

Daily until 11:00 p.m. (summer), even until midnight on the weekend (friday & saturday) The cable car operates every 15 minutes.

Please note: When the statutory maintenance work is done in spring and autumn, the cable-car and Panorama restaurant are closed.
