Berlin’s 2017 International Garden Show (IGA 2017) cable car has now transported more than one million passengers. This impressive milestone was reached in less than three months of operations after the system was inaugurated on April 13, 2017.

The 10-passenger monocable urban gondola, designed and operated by LEITNER Ropeways, is Berlin’s first aerial lift in 60 years. Since its opening, the system has been huge attraction for guests.

The 65 cabins (6 with transparent floors) on the gondola travels up to 30m above ground throughout the site from Kienbergpark to the “Gärten der Welt”. Tickets for the gondola ride is included as part of the IGA 2017 entrance fee.

A total of 3,000 passengers per hour per direction can be transported onboard the IGA 2017 cable car. Once the exhibition comes to a close on October 15, 2017, the ropeway will continue to operate. The system will function as part of Berlin’s local transport system and provide a direct 4.5 minute connection between the districts of Marzahn and Hellersdorf and the “Kienberg – Gärten der Welt” subway station.
