One of the most popular cable cars in the Stubaital Valley is definitely the Kreuzjochbahn. From the town of Fulpmes (1,000m) it takes you more than a kilometer higher to the famous Kreuzjoch viewpoint (2,105m). On the way up, there is an intermediate station waiting for you, where you can also get off or get on and thus combine different tourist circuits. Kreuzjoch itself is not only a viewpoint, but also a great elevated starting point for other tourist destinations.

View of Fulpmes

The lower station of the cable car is located at the western end of the town of Fulpmes. There is a really large parking lot, so you don't have to worry about not being able to fit in here. After just a short drive you have a beautiful view of the picturesque Stubaital valley.

Kreuzjochbahn Mittelstation

We arrive at Kreuzjochbahn Mittelstation, where more people get on (and head down) than get off. There are children's pla­ygrounds and refreshment options nearby.

Alpine meadows

There are beautiful alpine meadows and nice views around the intermediate station. The popular Froneben alm, half a kilometer away, can also be seen in the photo.

A steep climb up

Only from the intermediate station does the climb really gain strength.

Final ride

Finally, in the distance we see our destination – Kreuzjoch. At the top right, you can see the well-known Aussichtsplattform Stubaiblick, where the basic and shortest walk from Kreuzjoch leads.

Beautiful view from Kreuzjoch

As soon as you get off the cable car, you will fall to your knees – the view from here is really amazing.

Upper cable car station

The upper station of the cable car is really at a crossroads – tourists diverge on several possible routes. It is ideal to continue to the viewpoint first and then to descend into the Schlick valley, which will take you to the intermediate station. Of course, whoever has more strength and time can continue from there to some interesting peak.
