  • A short walk from the Hotel Pupp is the cable car, you start driving on Diana and then just contemplating. For children is entertained in the summer, here's a Peacock, and in the Corral are animals. There is also a Butterfly House. In summer, the restaurant with a garden. Winter visit, I don't recommend very much.

  • There is nothing to evaluate. Visit in the winter, the cable car down, unfortunately at the valley station without warning that even Tower will be closed. So walk up the hard-packed, the overgrown sidewalk. It was about health. No warning that it is not kept, or not recommended. I had to look behind us, where it reached:( Back over the steps ban funiculars. Just one big mistake.

  • A lookout okay, beautiful views. Near the mini zoo, Butterfly House. Restaurant okay, only the portions quite small and affordable to more expensive.
