How to reach Schmittenhohe from Zell AM See. I will be staying at Talstraße 70, 5700 Zell am See, pension herzoggut. Is there a Bus or Train ?
Are the Ski routes easily sign-posted? e.g I want to stick to 'easy' routes and dont want to end up on a difficult one!
We are hoping to stay in the zell am see region next summer. Please could you explain to me how the cable cars work in the summer at Schmitten?
I understand that you get the Schmittenhöhebahn cable car up to the top and that you can park right near to the bottom cable car station. Is the Schmittenhöhebahn cable car the one designed by Porsche? There also seems to be one called the trassXpress... is this also available during the summer?
Once you are at the top, from the map, it seems you can only visit the lakes if you want to walk down towards Zell am see, along the Areitbahn route?
People keep talking about a walk to the Sonnenalm which takes between 25 - 60 mins (according to different opinions). Is this a steep downhill walk? Our youngest will only be 4 so we need to make sure its practical for us! Once you've walked to the sonnenalm, I presume you then take the Sonnkogelbahn chairlift, followed by the Sonnenalmbahn cable car? If we were to do this walk, are there things to keep our three Daughters (who will be 4, 7 and 9) occupied? How big is the play area on the way?
Where abouts is the Schmidolin's Baptism of Fire located and what exactly is it please?
Lastly, am looking at the prices... Is the SUMMIT CHARGER-TICKET 2000M a return ticket? It is 25 euros. Or do you have to pay for the ascent and descent separately?
Am sorry to ask a million questions, just want to get my facts right!!
