New Rendlbahn in St. Anton

Opening of a new 8-seater Leitner gondola at St. Anton am Arlberg

The Arlberger Bergbahnen company has invested EUR 13 million in its new Rendlbahn. In its 35 years of operation, the old system built by Waagner-Biro carried a total of 7 million passengers. It was a bicable gondola and one of the last of its type in Austria; there are only seven still operating.

The new line chosen for the gondola made it possible to relocate the lower terminal, which was originally so far from the center of the resort that St. Anton’s north- and west-facing slopes tended to be neglected by visitors. The new terminal is conveniently located above the coach station and is just 150 meters from the Galzigbahn. As a result the slopes of the Rendl, which had always been something of an insider tip in the past, are now easily accessible for everyone.

Convenience from valley to mountain

From the coach terminal, an escalator leads straight to the ticket office and the spacious loading area in the lower terminal. For visitors arriving from the direction of the Galzig or Kapall, the terminal offers grade access.

The ride in the modern 8-seater Diamond gondolas with heated seating built by Sigma takes about 7.5 minutes. The new Leitner gondola has a line length of 2588 m and a system capacity of 2000 P/h. At an altitude of 2030 meters above sea-level, visitors can enjoy not only the superb skiing and boarding but also a brand-new mountain restaurant built at a cost of about EUR 3 million.
