The railroad is in operation all year round in summer and winter. To start the ride you have to call Mr. Durrer with the installed phone at the station. He will then operate the train and transport you safely up or down.
The passion of Josef Durrer for his Buiräbähnli
Josef Durrer already grew up here at 1200 m above sea level at the Spis farm and took over his parents' farm at a young age. He has always lived and worked the life above Oberrickenbach. His farm includes a lot of pasture land, which he now leases out. Meanwhile he is in a well-deserved retirement and besides his wife, the two children and a couple of cats it became quieter on the farm. Today he looks after both cable cars and welcomes hikers with pleasure. The lower section Fell - Spis cable car belongs to him and the upper one he manages for the Alpgenossenschaft. The Spis - Sinsgäu cable car stands out for its unusual cabin - a so-called "Niederberger Schiffli". These historic cable cars of the manufacturer Niederberger - today Inauen-Schätti - still travel through the air as a convertible and offer a lasting experience.

Exercise in the great outdoors gives you hunger. In the Haghütte below the Sinsgäu mountain station you can sit comfortably.
The Alpbeizli Haghütte is one of the particularly inviting kind. Located on the hiking trail Bannalp - Sinsgäu - Oberrickenbach / Sinsgäu - Gitschenen / Sinsgäu - Haldigrat (zigzag trail), it is definitely worth a visit. And for those who don't want to stop in, at least buy a piece of cheese to eat at home as a souvenir of the beautiful hike.
