Kabeltram museum

Als je wilt weten hoe een kabeltram werkt, is het Kabeltrammuseum de plek om dit te leren. De eerste kabeltram ter wereld staat hier en met een precieze uitleg over hoe deze kleine kabeltrams zich tot halverwege de sterren komen. In een ondergrondse bezichtigingruimte kun je de enorme kabelwielen zien die 18 kilometer kabel met een snelheid van 15 kilometers per uur voort trekken. De kabeltrams bewegen door aan de kabel vast te haken. Onderzoek van dichtbij de stalen kabels, de uitrusting en de karretjes die het meest bekende middel van transport van de stad tot leven brengen. Mis de winkel niet, waar je je eigen stuk gebruikte kabel kunt kopen.
