Couldn't figure out why the double door system. Quirky, but considering the hotel had been in operation as a guest house/hostel/hotel since 1570, I think the renovations over the years make sense of this.

Bottom station of the Galzigbahn gondola. Huge gondolas that could hold 24 people per car, suspended on two wires on the sides of the car so very little rocking. Very stable. The bottom station had a ferris wheel setup so the entrance station was quite small.
