One of the best ways to look at the mountains and the river flowing by. Gives some of the best views and the entire ride is amazing. Not low priced though worth every bit of it.

The cable car is good fun, and the views from the top striking. However it's the town that really makes it worthwhile. Be sure to avoid the crowds by booking in advance
