A very different way to enjoy a welcome stop for refreshments: This kind of holiday experience is indeed a special one, when, after a satisfying morning of skiing, hiking, or a visit to Nature’s Ice Palace, you climb into the "Brettljausen-Gondola" with some of your favourite people.

The cold platter consists of delicious regional delicacies: the culinary diversity ranges from A, as in alpine cheese spread, to Z for Zillertal cheese variations. The breadbasket is filled with a variety of pastries and, of course, traditional Zillertal farmhouse bread. And not forgetting two other essential ingredients: The "Glacier Schnaps“ and lovely Zillertal Music – with an eclectic mix of local tunes just ready to play! Drink requests are well-catered for by the Zillertal Bier Brewery: choose between Zillertal Beer, Zillertal Radler (shandy) or "Midi's" premium lemonades in a variety of flavours (apple, ginger or lemon).

Frequently asked questions

For reasons of space, the maximum upper limit for the Brettljausen gondola and breakfast gondola is 4 people. For more people we recommend a hearty snack in our service restaurant Wirtshaus am Tuxer Ferner. For groups of up to 6 people, the Bavarian gondola breakfast is also available in the gondola.

Gondola breakfast:
The boarding time can be chosen between 09.00 and 10.00. After that you can ride as many laps as you want. Experience has shown that most guests have breakfast between 3-4 rounds, with one round lasting around 20 minutes.

Brettljausen gondola:
The boarding time can be selected between 12.30 p.m. and 2 p.m., the last possible exit at the valley station of the 10er Gefrorene Wand Bahn is at 3.45 p.m. In between, you can gondola and snack to your heart's content, with one round (from the valley station to the mountain station and back) taking about 20 minutes.

The gondola will be reserved exclusively for you and your loved ones. So you don't sit in the gondola with other guests!

We would like to point out that the table in the gondola can sometimes get cramped with a dog. If you think your four-legged friend can get along well in the gondola, you are welcome to bring your dog with you.

The 10-person Gefrorene Wand Bahn starts right next to the Tuxer Fernerhaus at 2,660m. From the valley station in Hintertux, take the first two gondolas (Gletscherbus 1 or 8-seater Sommerberg and Gletscherbus 2 or 4-seater Fernerhaus) up and then board the 10-seater Gefrorene Wand Bahn directly at the station next to it. The ascent to the entrance to the gondola takes about 20 minutes. Take a look at the 10-seater Gefrorene Wand Bahn here: interactive piste map

The gondola breakfast or the Brettljausen gondola can either be taken with the regular ski pass or as a pedestrian with the Fascination Ice Panorama Ticket. The panorama ticket Fascination Ice is also valid for the Gletscherbus 3, so nothing stands in the way of an ascent to the panorama terrace or to the Natural Ice Palace after breakfast or before a snack.

In principle, the gondola breakfast or the Brettljausen gondola takes place in any weather. If it is not possible to operate the 10-seater Gefrorene Wand Bahn due to a strong storm etc., guests with a reservation will be informed of the cancellation on the day of breakfast. In this case, the money will of course be refunded. Otherwise we ask you to observe the terms and conditions, which state that free cancellation is possible up to 7 days before the reserved date, after that 100% cancellation costs apply.
