Special ticket "Silener mountain trail"

Silenerberge mountain trail incl. suspension bridge adventure

The Golzern and Chilcherberge cable cars are connected by the attractive, family-friendly Silenerberge mountain trail. A varied mountain hike with impressive views of the Maderanertal Alpine valley and the Bristen (3,073 m a.s.l.), a landmark of the canton of Uri. The special ticket is valid for a single journey on both the Golzern and Chilcherberge cable cars, and may be purchased from the cable car attendants in Golzern and Chilcherberge.

The Silenerberge mountain trail leads along a high-level mountain terrace from Chilcherberge to Golzern. The trail has been carefully enhanced over the past years. Along the way, many places have been secured or bypassed, and several viewpoints have been made accessible to visitors. The Schipfenbach suspension bridge is a special highlight. 

The Chilcherberge cable car takes you up to the first viewing terrace. From there, the mountain trail takes you via the Schipfental suspension bridge, through exceptional wooded area and past lovely, fragrant wildflower meadows to Golzern. Nearby Golzernsee lake offers a welcome opportunity to cool down. 

The Golzern cable car then takes you down to Bristen. Of course, you can also do this hike in the opposite direction.

The special ticket includes the following transportation:

  • Postbus Amsteg-Golzern valley station
  • Auto AG Uri Erstfeld-Amsteg
  • Chilcherberge cable car
  • Golzern cable car

The special ticket can be purchased from your PostBus driver, the divers of Auto AG Uri or at the Chilcherberge and Golzern cable cars.
