The historic funicular

On 29 June 1908, the Kohlerer-funicular went into service in Bozen. It was the first cable car in the world to carry passengers. About 800m difference in altitude could be covered in 15 minutes (nowadays in 5 min.). It was a small sensation for the world. A bold idea by the innkeeper Josef Staffler to bring guests up to Kohlern in the summer to the inn of the same name for a holiday away from the heat of Bozen.
