Five Fingers Dachstein Salzkammergut

Not for the faint-hearted! The 5fingers viewing platform offers an adrenaline rush at the highest level. This is probably the most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps and reaches out like a hand over the 400 m drop.

Over 5 platforms (the Five Fingers), each in a different design, you can put your head for heights to the test and enjoy unique views down over Hallstatt, the Hallstättersee lake and the inner Salzkammergut region.

 The 5 different levels, each 4 x 1 m in size, offer spectacular insight and views. One of the platforms is made entirely from glass and another enables visitors to gain their own personal view of the Hallstatt World Heritage site through a large Baroque picture frame.  
The ‘5fingers’ are illuminated until midnight and can be seen from far and wide, even at night.
 But it’s not just the viewing platform, it’s also the route there which offers plenty of special features. The Experiences Trail leading from the cable car mountain station to the Pioneer Cross offers yet another viewing platform, in addition to the 5fingers. The World Natural Heritage viewing platform above the Krippenstein Lodge offers perfect views of both the Dachstein glaciers. The walk to the Pioneer Cross can easily be completed in around 20 minutes by (virtually) all visitors. 


Disabled access!

World Natural Heritage viewing platform

The route to the WeltNATURerbeblick viewing platform is wheelchair accessible and suitable for guests of all ages who may not be so good on their feet! The magnificent views of the Hallstatt glacier will not fail to impress!
