04.06.2019 | New passenger cableway at Limmern pumped storage plant

High up to the ibexes

The new aerial cableway between Linthal-Tierfehd and Kalktrittli will soon go into operation. The highlight: the gondolas are equipped with the latest technology enabling unmanned operation - and offer passengers not only a great view, but also, with a bit of luck, exciting insights into the animal world of the Glarus Alps.

Just in time for the start of the summer season at the Muttsee SAC hut, hikers and nature lovers in the Canton of Glarus can take the new passenger cableway to Kalktrittli on their way to the lakes Limmernsee and Muttsee and further over the Kistenpass to Surselva. The new two-track aerial cableway has two cabins, each with space for eight passengers, and runs in self-operation mode monitored and controlled from the power plant control centre of Kraftwerke Linth-Limmern AG (KLL).
