Cable car ticket comparison - Summer Card vs. Basic Card

What is the difference between the cable car ticket options?

With so many different lift tickets, it's easy to lose track. However, there are actually only two main types of travel passes: the Basic Card and the Summer Card. But do I really need an all-in-one card? Is the Basic Card not enough? Below you will find a comparison and a few tips to help you make the right choice.

Summer Card

Your ticket for 37 summer cable cars in the Kitzbühel Alps

The Summer Card offers absolute freedom to experience and enjoy the many wonders of the Kitzbühel Alps. If you are staying in Brixen, Kirchberg or Westendorf, the card includes travel to both the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental (borders on Westendorf and Brixen im Thale) and the KitzSki area (borders on Kirchberg). The Summer Card covers both areas and offers you access to the countless hiking and mountain bike trails, ensuring plenty of mountain adventure. The card also offers attractive discounts on many activities in the region. So take a seat and allow yourself to be whisked up into the heart of the Austrian Alps.

The Summer Card is slightly more expensive than a local travel pass for a designated resort. If you're looking to explore more than one resort during your holiday, then buying the all-in-one card will save you money - and time required to purchase tickets for other areas. With the Summer Card, you can simply hike and bike wherever you want. And the best thing about it: the Summer Card also includes cable car journeys to other spectacular regions:

In a nutshell

The answer depends on your individual holiday needs. For families with young children staying longer than a week, we recommend the Summer Card, as there are so many family adventures to enjoy in every corner of the Kitzbühel Alps.

For guests planning a short break in the Brixental Valley, the Basic Card for the mountain area of choice is usually sufficient.

Before you purchase your travel pass, it is best to do some research to find out which mountains or theme parks you would like to explore and the cable car operators that service that region. This will help you decide which ticket is the right one for you. If, for example, you want to explore the SkiWelt on one day, and then visit the world famous Hahnenkamm in Kitzbühel on the next, then the Summer Card is your best option.
