Winter Cable Car Hike Oberwindau – Choralpe – Nachtsöllberg

Departing from Westendorf’s village centre, we walk towards the Alpenrosenbahn. We pass this gondola station, where we can also purchase our lift tickets, and continue our hike along the Oberwindauer Straße.  After a short ascent, we arrive at the bottom station of the Choralmbahn, which transports us in comfort to the mountain-top Choralpe station.  Here a magnificent, panoramic view awaits us, as well as a mountain restaurant.  From there we follow the ski track down to the Talkaser, the Alpenrosenbahn mountain-top station, where there’s another beautifully situated mountain restaurant.  After refreshments, we take the Alpenrosenbahn down to the mid-station and walk initially along the ski route (No. 110a) to the Gasthof Maierhof.  Please keep to the edge of the ski slope and take care from passing skiers – this stretch of the hike is not an official hiking route!!  From the Gasthof Maierhof we continue our walk down to the valley along the mountain road where we pass a number of inns and restaurants – Stimmlach, Alte Mittel, Sportalm, Zieplhof and Café Bruchstall.
