A breathtaking panorama and never-before-seen perspectives

The unique interior design makes it possible to enjoy unforgettable 360° vistas extending from Zeller See to the Grossglockner. Taking in the eagle’s-eye view, you will float comfortably up through 4 climate zones, gaining 2,261 vertical meters in the process.
Discover Gipfelwelt 3000 & the National Park Gallery
