Directly from Kaprun to the eternal ice of the glacier on the Kitzsteinhorn

The opening of the 3K K-onnection in December 2019 is considered an epochal step in the history of the region Zell am See-Kaprun. The world's most modern cable car in Kaprun is a dream of generations come true. It connects the centre of Kaprun (768 m) via the Maiskogel family mountain with the glacier on the Kitzsteinhorn and the TOP OF SALZBURG adventure world in 3,029 metres.

Daily open till 18.09.22


Unique panoramic ride from the town Kaprun 768 m to TOP OF SALZBURG 3,029 m

The MK Maiskogelbahn, directly in the centre of Kaprun, is the comfortable starting point of a unique panoramic ride to the eternal white of the glacier.

Like a string of pearls, up to six cable cars line up to TOP OF SALZBURG in 3,029 metres on the  Kitzsteinhorn. The twelve-kilometre-long panoramic ride is not only the longest continuous cable car axis, but with 2,261 metres of difference in altitude metres, it also overcomes the largest difference in altitude in the Eastern Alps.

Like flying: The 3K K-onnection

The heart of the new, direct route to the Kitzsteinhorn is the 3K K-onnection. The three-cable continuously circulating gondola lift is considered to be the most modern cable car in the world. Almost  silently and just as if they are flying, nature and mountain lovers glide towards the highest peaks in Austria. 32 designer cabins and two all-round glazed Explorer cabins guarantee a fantastic high-alpine 360-degree panorama and impressive views down into the Kaprun Valley, to Lake Klammsee and to Lake Zell.


Kitzsteinhorn EXPLORER TOUR

Accompanied by a national park ranger, four climate and vegetation zones will be crossed and a difference of 2,261 meters in altitude will be overcome. Along the cable car sections, visitors enjoy an eagle's perspective. The views from the all-round glazed Explorer cabins of the 3K K-onnection are particularly magnificent. In between, smaller tours are undertaken to explore fauna and flora in the respective climate zones.

The "Kitzsteinhorn EXPLORER TOUR" starts daily at 9.00 am at the Kaprun Center and can be combined with a "National Park Gallery Tour" in the afternoon, turning it into a whole, exciting nature experience day.
