LEITNER Ropeways Builds New Trebević Cable Car in Sarajevo

After an absence of nearly three decades, an aerial ropeway has finally returned to Sarajevo’s famous Trebević mountain. The new 10-passenger cable car, built by LEITNER ropeways, carries visitors to the summit (1,160m) from the old city centre in just seven minutes and fifteen seconds.

The state-of-the-art aerial lift, designed with LEITNER’s DirectDrive system, can transport up to 1,200 passengers per hour per direction onboard its 33 cabins.

The cable car was made possible thanks in part to 3.5 million Euros donation by a Dutch nuclear physicist and businessman, Edmond “Eddy” Offerman. Offerman has a very special connection to the mountain as he met his wife, Maja Serdarević, in the Bosnian capital back in the 90s. As such, he had many fond memories riding the old Trebević aerial lift.

Anton Seeber (Managing Director of LEITNER), Abdulah Skaka (Mayor of Sarajevo) and Martin Leitner (Member of the LEITNER Board of Directors) were all in attendance at the opening ceremony. Image from LEITNER ropeways.

The former ropeway was a central component of the 1984 Winter Olympics and a popular day trip excursion until it was destroyed during the Yugoslav Wars in the 90s. The new recreational urban gondola reopened on April 6, the same day in which Offerman began his relationship with Serdarević.

Offerman hopes that the cable car installation can contribute to the revival of Sarajevo. To learn more about this project, click here.
