Marbachegg

Breath-taking views and lightning-fast rides

On Marbachegg, the mountain views are simply breath-taking. The sun terrace at Berggasthaus Marbachegg is a perfect place to relax. Marbachegg is also a great starting point for a variety of both leisurely and spectacular walks. With the Marbachegg Carts, fun and adventure are guaranteed. The wooden pistes allow you to ride the three- or four-wheeled carts across the Alpine meadows of Marbachegg. Because the lighting-fast downhill ride requires all your concentration, you can enjoy the breath-taking views on the drag lift that takes you conveniently and safely back up onto Marbachegg. The Clientis Flowtrail Marbachegg is a true biker’s paradise. And travelling in comfort to the start point by gondola means you can save your energy for all of its bumps and jumps.
