• Disabled Access on the Mountain


Up, up and away in our panoramic lift!

Here on the Großer Arber, safety for young and old is our motto! When we installed a modern elevator in 2012, we took an important step in disabled access. Thanks to this addition, the highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest is now accessible to everyone -

without having to navigate steps or steep slopes. This means that our elderly or disabled guests can comfortably get to Großer Arber and enjoy the breathtaking views as well as the various restaurant options high above the clouds. Our ‘King of the Bavarian Forest’ awaits!

From the car park, there is a secure elevator to help you bypass the steps and make our base station completely accessible. A side entrance lets you comfortably enter our 6-person gondola lift, which is fitted with a ramp suitable for all DIN standard wheelchairs. You can request a DIN standard wheelchair from us in advance. Of course, you can count on help from our friendly staff at all times. To make sure you have safe access, the gondolas stop at both the valley station and mountain station.

Up, up and away in our panoramic lift!

Once you’ve arrived at the mountain station, you will find a spacious veranda with breathtaking views of the Bavarian and Bohemian forests. From here, you can take our impressive glass elevator, which provides safe access to our restaurants, the Arber Refuge and the Eisensteiner Hütte. Treat yourself to a culinary expedition to the Großer Arber and indulge in traditional Bavarian cuisine in a cosy atmosphere!
