Kohlern cable car
Bolzano is the birthplace of the first passenger cablecar in the world. It was the innkeeper Josef Staffler, a pioneer of tourism, which had the brilliant idea to connect the valley with the mountain Colle, 1135m above sea level. The former six-person cabin lay back on a rope "flying high" of about 850m. An excellent performance in the old days. The news spread like wildfire. Locals and guests were already in the early morning hours in line to experience the thrill of a cable car ride. For many the Colle cable car is still a secret. In just 7 minutes and usually in half-hour clock, the Bolzano Colle cable car brings people into the summer resort.
