Thrilling "5fingers viewing platform" in winter

Every finger a new perspective

The "5fingers" are the absolute highlight of the newly staged hiking world on the Krippenstein Plateau. One of the most spectacular viewing platforms in the Alps juts out like a hand over a 400 meter deep abyss. Five different footbridges, each four by one meter, provide spectacular insights and views. In addition, one of the footbridges is made entirely of glass, and on another, visitors can take a framed World Heritage photo of themselves using a large, baroque picture frame.

On snowshoes to the holiday highlight

But not only the viewing platform, but also the way there offers special features. A winter hike, with or without snowshoes depending on the snow conditions, is an absolute experience. The path leads from the mountain station via the "World Heritage Spiral" to the "Pioneer Cross". The approximately 1-hour tour to the viewing platform is relatively easy to walk. A real family experience.

Where can I get snowshoes?

The snowshoe rental is located directly at the valley station of the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car. "Sport Janu" has the right "footwear" for everyone. You can find all further information in the following article. Prices and current travel times for the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car can be found under "Information at a glance". Don't forget: You are travelling at 2000 metres above sea level, so dress warmly!
