The Koblenz cable car, or also known as the BUGA cable car, is a cable car that hovers over the Rhine in Koblenz. It was built as an attraction and environmentally friendly means of transport specifically for the "Bundesgartenschau 2011" (Federal Horticultural Show 2011). The cable car has connected the Rhine area at the height of the Basilica of St. Kastor with the plateau in front of the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress since 2010. It is Germany's first three-wire cable car and with 18 cabins has a transport capacity of 7,600 people per hour, giving it the highest performance in the world. Following an agreement with Unesco in 2013, the cable car can be operated until 2026.
