Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Cable Car Station Post Herrsching to Andechs

After years of negotiations, the time has finally come and great joy is spreading amongst those in charge from Herrsching and Andechs.

Mayor Mr. Gondl Heinz: "A sensation for the tourism and a gain for the entire Five Lakes District."

"Statistical figures of the Tourism Association about the rising average age of the Andechs Abbey visitors were a good reason for this project, so as to enable the ascent to the holy mountain to all our guests.", stated Mr. Arndt Kloster. This has been carefully thought over and a wheelchair ramp was planned at the same time.

After lengthy discussion the agreement was made that a brand new cable car station would be neither affordable nor fit into the landscape, so offers in neighbouring Austria were requested.

It so happened that one got in touch with the Stubeital, where the historical cable car station had just been dismantled. As early as 1972 our Olympic team was lifted to victory to the top of this mountain. Just in time for the 1st April 2013 the first cable car was delivered to The Post.

Everybody in Herrsching cheers and participates: For example, the regulars at The Post agreed to help with the necessary construction work in the Postgarten whilst Augustiner of course supplies the beer during the regular's building phase.

During heated negotiations, the Herrsching handball players collected signatures for the cable car system. As a gift they handed a contract over to the innkeepers of The Post who will have the logistical responsibility for the cable car system. In the contract the players consented themselves to always on the first of the month provide players, who will take care of the ticket sales at the valley station of Post Herrsching. Even a nearby major food store already decided to run an "Herzl Aktion" incentive programme with discounted tickets for the cable car.

The innkeepers and the entire Herrsching hope for a large attendance at the spectacular groundbreaking ceremony held on the 1st April 2013, to be followed by a jolly sit-together in the cable car.
