The Rostock/Munich Lift is on a Mountain

Remember the garden exhibition lift that first appeared in Rostock (IGA) in 2003 then was disassembled and reassembled in Munich (BUGA) in 2005?

Turns out, immediately following the BUGA show, the system was once again taken down and rebuilt … on a mountain. Yup, 40% of the system was re-used to construct the Imberg gondola lift at the Steibis ski resort in Bavarian Allgäu (southern Germany). And all in a matter of months — the dismantling starting in October and the system was in operation by mid-December of the same year.
