Gletscherstraße 240, 6524 Kaunertal, A
Architecture: Baumschlager Hutter Partners (2019) Builder-owner: Kaunertaler Gletscherbahnen GmbH Open to the public: During operating hours Accessibility: Right next to the parking lot at the glacier restaurant (base station). In 2020, the station buildings received a Recognition Award of the State of Tyrol for New Building.

For the newly built Falginjochbahn aerial tramway on the Kaunertal Glacier, the architects developed two technoid-looking infrastructure buildings made of concrete, steel and glass that make reference to the technical equipment of cable car technology. Situated at an elevation of 2,750 meters, the base station consists of a large, glazed steel framework on a concrete plinth; the cantilevered top station at an altitude of over 3,000 meters is designed as an antipode.
