The Hochfelln in the Chiemgau

The Hochfelln is called “The Observation Deck of the Chiemgau”.

The Hochfelln cable car takes you up. The Hochfelln cable car runs in two sections: first to the middle station and after short changes to Hochfellnhaus on the summit. The cable car can be reached from the motorway exit Bergen (BAB 8 Salzburg-Munich) in 5 minutes. The Hochfelln cable car has daily service from 1 May - Allerheiligen from 9:00 clock driving. In winter, the train and the lifts on the Bründling-Alp run daily during the week from Friday-Sunday and during the Christmas and Carnival holidays. Further information at

On the summit of the Hochfelln you have a panoramic view over the lake Chiemsee and in the Alps to Tyrol, South Tyrol, and the Salzburger Land.

A promising hiking tour leads from the valley station of the Hochfelln cable car up to the 1,674 m high summit. The way to the middle station can be mastered without problems. It is a forest path that you can really go easy.

The restaurant "HOCHFELLNBLICK" at the middle station is open when driving the cable car from 10.00-17.00 clock.

The Hochfellnhaus is the highest located inn in the Chiemgau!

Below the summit is the Bründling alp. The Bründling Alp (1161 m) is one of the oldest and most beautiful pastures in the region of Hochfelln. The Bründling Alp is exactly halfway to Hochfelln and invites you to take a break.

Paragliders and hang gliders appreciate the Hochfelln because of its good take-off opportunities. If you come more often, you can buy a 10-card including daily membership at the box office of Hochfelln cable car station.

Demanding ski runs on perfectly groomed, but rather challenging slopes are waiting for you. For beginners and families with children, the lifts on the Bründling Alp are ideal.
