  • This is a tour of the family community. A day in the mountains. It is absolutely different from TV and photo viewing. If your foot is not wrong, you can climb the ladder. From overlooking the view ... The ⋯⋯ of this trip

  • The mountain is beautiful and already ride the gondola up whets the appetite for the explorations. It's all super organized and well maintained. Top a beautiful temple complex and glass way, giving a good look down when the weather is good. For us it was very foggy and visibility so not that great. For this reason, we could not go the stairs to heaven and have used the escalators in the mountain. The ride with the vans the numerous Serpteninen down - also a nice experience.
