          I'm thinking of booking a trip to the Ice hotel but can't find any info on the cable car. Could anyone tell me how the cable car journey is? How long does it take to get from bottom to top?

          Hello! We are in Sibiu for a few more days and have been planning on visiting the ice hotel. What is the town and/or address where the cable car leaves from? We may need to take a taxi to that address and are trying to see if it would be worth it. We have been taking trains and buses everywhere so far. Thanks! Steve
