Relax on the Dachstein-Krippenstein peak

Just a few minutes from the mountain station for the Dachstein-Krippenstein cable car is the World Heritage Spiral viewing platform, where there are comfortable places to stop off for a rest and relaxing loungers, which invite you to repose at 2100 metres altitude on the Krippenstein.

The World Heritage Spiral viewing platform not only provides an unbelievable view, it also provides information about the very different World Heritage Sites and special features in terms of structures and landscapes.

And those of you who don’t just want to brush up on your geographical knowledge can also capture the experience on camera; the new photo point provides a great opportunity to do just that. Using a remote shutter release every summiteer can photograph themselves and download the image on to the Internet later on – an unforgettable memento of a wonderful day on the mountain.

Experience a 360° Tour of the Dachstein Krippenstein

During the opening times of the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car from May to October.
