THE GAMPENBAHN CABLE CAR ALPINE ZOO: WHICH ANIMAL ARE YOU SHARING A SEAT WITH?

If you’re sitting in the Gampenbahn cable car, you don’t just have eight minutes of the most spectacular views of the peaks of Paznaun, you can also see 128 animals from the Tyrolean Alpine landscape – on the seats. We have pictures of the best-looking creatures. 128 seats. Almost 1 000 metres of altitude. 8 minutes of travelling time. And 128 studies of natural history, all from the comfort of the chair lift. At the end of the Gampenbahn’s debut season, we set up our camera at Palinkomp and waited to photograph the best-looking animals on the seats.
