"Well worth the nominal fee to take the gondola up. Bring a picnic and a book, or hiking shoes and refreshments. There is a restaurant at the top with the great area for families. As a solo visitor, wonderful hiking trails well marked (fine for English speakers) the views were breathtaking! Absolutely a worthwhile visit in the summer."
"In winter is the best time to go we because then you can ski I go there every winter to ski on that mountain or sledge but be careful you can end up in a tree but the view is beautiful and food is good but the people who work there ar not so nice as tip."
