Sightseeing Train and Aerial Tramway to the Punkva Caves

Modern symbols of environmental protection: Seightseeing train between Skalní mlýn and Punkva Caves and aerial tramway up to the Upper Bridge of Macocha Abyss. As the train and the tramway were suitably integrated to the system of movement of the visitors in this frequented part of the Moravian Karst, cars were successfully excluded from this unique area. Believe us, the view from the tramway down to Macocha will take your breath away once you see the elevation difference. Come visit us and see for yourself!

The transport of visitors from the parking lot atSkalní mlýn to the Punka Caves has been secured by two trains since 1993. Their timetables are synchronized with the entrance times to the Punkva Caves. Regular intervals of 20 or 40 minutes correlate with the caves’ entrance schedule. There are sufficient capacities available so even in the most frequented days there is no reason to worry that you will not get to the caves on time.

Macocha Aerial Tramway provides the connection from the Punkva Caves to the bridges and the Macocha Chalet since 1995. It is considered to be one of the most eco-friendly means of transport, moreover, since it is situated in its natural environment effectively and thoughtfully, there is no doubt about its importance. We have successfully transported hundreds of thousands of visitors in the 20-year history of its existence. It is a practical alternative for all the visitors of Moravian Karst who don’t want to or cannot walk. Its route passes the limestone rocks so a spectacular view is guaranteed.
