Most visitors ascend the 1080-meter-high mountain via the cableway. At the top of the mountain is a café, gift shop and a number of short walking trails where you can take in views from both sides of the mountain. For the more adventurous, the mountain can be ascended on foot via an assortment of trails that vary in length and difficulty. Note that the top of the mountain is often engulfed in a cloud commonly referred to as the "table cloth," so if it is not sunny and calm outside, it may be worth calling or checking online to make sure the cable car is operating as it frequently closes during windy or cloudy days.
