Bergstation und Restaurant der Älplibahn
The Älplibahn Malans may be the smallest mountain cable car in Graubünden. But no other cable car in Switzerland covers more meters in altitude without a stopover. From the mountain restaurant at the top station at 1,802 meters above sea level, visitors enjoy a magnificent view.


The bottom station of the Älpli cable car is located above the Malans vineyards. The smallest mountain cable car in Graubünden carries 8 people per ride. Built in 1941 by the military, the aerial tramway climbs more meters in altitude without a stopover than any other cable car in Switzerland. At the top of the mountain station at 1,802 m.a.s.l. there is a mountain restaurant, from whose terrace visitors can enjoy a magnificent view of the Chur Rhine Valley and the Grisons and Glarus Alps. Numerous hikes start from here, for example also to the Vilan, which can be climbed in about 2 hours. The cable car as well as the mountain restaurant are managed and operated by an association and numerous volunteers. Since the Älplibahn is very popular and can only transport 32 people per hour, all train rides must always be reserved.
