The Rax Aerial Cableway is precisely one of the reasons why Rax has become one of the most popular mountains in the east of Austria.

It is open daily, all year round, and connects the high plateau quietly and without emissions. For over 90 years, hikers – young and old, and also those with special needs – have been making use of the Rax Aerial Cableway for relaxing mountain excursions!

  • situated directly at the Rax Aerial Cableway Summit Station
  • ideal for guests with limited mobility
  • a restaurant with a seated terrace, 200 seats, panoramic view
  • 65 beds
  • home-style cooking
  • open all day, everyday
  • ideal for groups

The rustic stylish “Ottohaus” has a seating area for over 180 guests, has 30 beds and communal bunks for up to 28 persons.
