AlpspiX viewing platform

At the base of Alpspitze peak, visitors will find the AlpspiX Viewing Platform hovering 13 meters (42 feet) over an empty void in the shape of an 'X' with two protruding platforms. The exceptional architecture opens unmatched views towards Zugspitze peak and the Höllental gorge and lets visitors experience a spectacular alpine high.

AlpspiX is easy to reach, just 50 meters (164 feet) above the Alpspitze mountain station and next to the mountain station of the Osterfelderkopf lift. Here, the two steel beams with a length of 24 meters (79 feet) of the AlpspiX Viewing Platform jut out 13 meters (42 feet) over an empty void with the other eleven meters (66 feet) anchored in the rock. Just the ramps of the two Viewing Platforms alone with a width of three meters (ten feet) each are enough to get your adrenalin pumping: Viewers stand on a grid. This design permits the snow to fall through in the winter. At the end of the structure, visitors reach a glass wall and have a sensational view of the nearby cliffs, the breathtaking alpine panorama and almost 1000 meters (3281 feet) down into the depths.
