The Mendola/Mendel funicular

Mendola/Mendel funicular: temporarily out of service

Annual technical inspections under way

Due to inspection and maintenance works, the Mendola/Mendel funicular will be out of service from 14 November to 18 December 2022.

The funicular is once again due for its yearly inspection and technical maintenance, during which the entire system is thoroughly serviced – as required by law.

In June and August of this year, the Mendola/Mendel funicular transported more than 30,000 passengers per month – and in July by more than 35,000. With more than 1700 ticket check-ins, the peak day was 11 August.

The funicular will be out of service from Monday 14 to all of Wednesday 18 December. On weekdays except Saturdays, the following replacement bus services are available to commuters in the mornings and evenings:

  • Passo della Mendola/Mendelpass: departure at 6:44; arrival in Caldaro/Kaltern (Piazza Rottenburg/Rottenburger Platz) at 7:14
  • Caldaro/Kaltern (Piazza Rottenburg/Rottenburger Platz): departure at 17:49; arrival at Passo della Mendola/Mendelpass at 18:19
