Budapest Zugliget Chairlift Now Closed Until 3 June
The Zugligeti Chairlift is closed between 02.05.2022 and 03.06.2022 due to maintenance works.

The Chairlift was built in 1970. The cable-railway connects Zugliget and János Hill in the 12th  district of Budapest.

The line of the Chairlift is 1040 m long; the level difference is 262 m between the 2 stations. The journey time is 15 minutes in both directions. At two cable-holder pillars the cable runs below the wheels and at all other pillars it runs over the wheels.

After 60 years of opening the first Bleichert-ropeway an entrepreneur came along with the plan for the first wire-rope suspension railway construction in Hungary.
