A viewing platform 360 meters above Hallstatt

The pointy-shaped steel structure is located directly below the "Rudolfsturm", 12 meters above the abyss. Anyone venturing out there, is rewarded with the unique view of Hallstatt and the World Heritage region. Thanks the cable car on the Salzberg, elevator and panoramic bridge, the platform is easily accessible also for families and seniors. The structure has a total weight of about 200 tons. 60 m³ of concrete serve as a counterweight to allow the absolutely secure free " floating " of the platform.

The Hallstatt High Valley - walk through the millennia

The archaeological findings from the salt mine and nearly a thousand opened graves in Hallstatt valley are so unique that the whole era ( 800 - 400 BC ) was called "Hallstatt period", which is worldwide well known. For the short walk around the valley audio guides are available in 13 languages. From the Skywalk, "World Heritage View", visitors enjoy the sensational panoramic views. Don't forget to schedule also a short rest on the beautiful terrace of the mountain restaurant " Rudolfsturm ".

Experience a 360° panorama tour over Lake Hallstatt…
