Highlights and facts project K-ONNECTION

On 30th of November 2019, the long-awaited Kaprun–Maiskogel–Kitzsteinhorn 3K K-onnection began to run. It is now possible to ride directly from the town center of Kaprun (elev. 768 m) via the Maiskogel and up to the TOP OF SALZBURG mountain terminal on the Kitzsteinhorn thanks to a 12 km-long string of pearls consisting of six gondola lifts - in Winter as well as in Summer.

This makes Maiskogel Family Mountain in Kaprun more attractive than ever. And because there are now two different ways to reach the 100% snowy Kitzsteinhorn Glacier Ski Area, guests can select the option that works best for them.

SKI‑IN SKI‑OUT

Total comfort and convenience

On foot from your hotel to the gondola. Now ride the new, ultra-modern MK Maiskogelbahn and 3K K-onnection lifts, first up the Maiskogel, then to the heart of the glacier ski area, where great snow conditions are 100% guaranteed. And when your winter sports are over for the day, hop back on board the lift with skis in tow for an enjoyable ride down to the valley, all the way back to the town center of Kaprun.

Longest lift axis & biggest elevation change in the Eastern Alps:

  • 12 km string of pearls
  • six gondola lifts in a row
  • rising from 768 m to 3029 m
  • biggest elevation gain (2261 m) in the Eastern Alps
SUMMER EXPERIENCES

Maiskogel family mountain

Thanks to the new MK Maiskogel Lift, Kaprun becomes more attractive than ever for families and their children. This lift also runs in summer, providing convenient access to the hiking paths and bike trails close to town.

The new 3K K-onnection, linking the Maiskogel and the Kitzsteinhorn, will be open in the summer months July and August too.

The Maisiflitzer, an Alpine Coaster which is likewise open year-round, as well as the family amusement park next to the valley station promise all kinds of fun and entertainment well into the evening hours.
