A cable car that does not need snow

This famous cable car is a unique tourist attraction in the West Flemish Province of Belgium. It was built in 1957 by real Austrian Alpine specialists, even though there is no ski slope nearby. The cable car connects two hills, the "Vidaigneberg" and the "Baneberg". And so it offers a unique view of the beautiful "Heuvelland" region with its characteristic landscape.

Away from the hustle and bustle, you float above the vineyards of Entre-Deux-Monts. With good weather, you can see the Flemish coastline or the Yser Tower, a monument in honor of the victims of the First World War. At some point, you can also look over the northern French border.

The cable car is open every afternoon during the summer holidays. From May to October only open on Saturdays and Sundays. Out of season only open on Sundays. The Cable Car has its own Tearoom called "Córdoba". where you can enjoy local specialties.

You can find it at this address: Cable car Cordoba, Rodebergstraat 75, Westouter, Belgium.
