An impressive construction – details of the viewing platform

Spanning a diameter of seven meters, the viewing platform on Stubnerkogel provides ample room to take in the beauty of the Gastein Panorama World. Made primarily from steel and wood, this robust structure boasts not only sturdiness but also an appealing design.

Did you know? The idea to build the Glocknerblick originated from the enthusiastic responses of visitors to the new suspension bridge on Stubnerkogel. The captivating experiences offered by the suspension bridge motivated the cable car company to expand upon this success by constructing the Glocknerblick.

Thrills at lofty heights

The safety of our visitors is paramount. That’s why the Glocknerblick is equipped with a transparent wire mesh grating that offers unobstructed views of the magnificent alpine surroundings. There are also mesh openings in the floor at the front of the platform, providing a clear view down from the precipice. An absolutely exhilarating experience for those who appreciate a bit of thrill and have a good head for heights.

Tip: A trip to Glocknerblick pairs perfectly with a visit to the suspension bridge, Felsenweg trail or Talblick viewing platform. Hop into the gondola, and you’re all set to embark on your adventure!
