The new "King Laurin" cableway to the Cologne Hut with "invisible" mountain station
The first cableway project of the renowned South Tyrolean architect Werner Tscholl
The new 10-passenger "King Laurin" gondola-type aerial lift from the Frommer Alm to the Cologne Hut will replace the two Laurin II and Laurin III chairlifts and will enable passengers to ascend 560 meters in safety and comfort in just 6.5 minutes, arriving directly at the cliffs of the legendary "Rose Garden" and the Cologne Hut at 2,337 meters above sea-level.
It is the first cableway project of the renowned South Tyrolean architect Werner Tscholl, who is responsible for the design of the mountain station.
Thus, the mountain station should not be visible as an independent architectural object.
Only the entrance and exit portals through which the gondolas enter and leave the underground station and the access tunnel for hikers and skiers are visibly cut into the side of the slope. From here, skiers can ski directly onto the ski slope, and hikers can access the existent hiking trails.
The impression of a cave entrance alludes to the legend of Laurin. The skiers and hikers enter, so to speak, King Laurin's underground palace in the Rose Garden. As the legend says, "The entrances to King Laurin's enchanted realm are lost to memory, his gates have sunk, their keys have been lost… But one day, children and singers will rediscover them and open them up again."
