Silence in seven minutes

Simply float away with the Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch cable car.

Immersed in a one hundred-year-old history of living tranquillity where surprisingly little has changed over the years. For example, this so-called “Bahndl” is still the only way of getting up to the Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch mountain and the vigilius mountain resort. The cable car quietly whirs away, conquering 1 200 metres of altitude in seven minutes and five pylons and bestowing new arrivals with a place that is totally in tune with the rhythm of nature. No engines, no asphalt, no parking spaces but instead meditative silence and the fresh, resinous, mossy fragrance of the gently swaying larch trees.
Of course, time has not stood completely still up here on the Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch. But everything and everyone arriving up here does so with the intention of living alongside and as part of nature. The architects of the vigilius mountain resort also took this to heart. The building is nestled into the landscape like a natural jewel with understated elegance, right next to the Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch cable car’s top station.

simply: exit.

Off the Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch cable car, off the world.

Saying goodbye to the noise and lights of the city is easy, sending you on a pleasantly short journey of rapid changes: the neat, cultured landscapes near Lana change into untamed mountain forests, oppressive summer heat is replaced by fresh mountain air, and rain turns into light snowfall. How quickly the stream of thoughts brought with you give way to surprising clarity though. Take a deep breath. Crystal clear air at 1 500 m above sea level. Suddenly, everything feels so light.
The gravel quietly crunches under your feet, just a few more steps to the hotel entrance. In the midst of an architecture blending in with the landscape, the doors open smoothly, offering a warm reception. Inside, the vigilius mountain resort uncompromisingly reflects what nature offers outside. Naturally soft materials, wood, stone, clay, linen and glass are combined to create attractive aesthetics. Simply beautiful, a world-class establishment , permeated by the region’s traditions.
