Aussichtsplattform AlpspiX, Garmisch-Partenkirchen

(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Feel like you're on top of the world--or at least on top of Germany--at Aussichtsplattform AlpspiX, a floating steel platform just above the top station of the Alpspitzbahn lifts. This securely fixed structure, laid out in an X shape off the cliff of the Alpspitz mountain, allows you to walk out 25 m (82 ft) to experience breathtaking views from a 1,000 m (3280 ft) vertical drop. If you're brave enough to walk to the end, you'll be rewarded with an unrestricted panorama of the snow-covered Zugspitz down to the untamed Höllental Valley. You can combine journeys on a number of hiking trails with your visit to the platform.

  • Not for the faint of heart! View 1000 m in depth of the two platforms. Thrills guaranteed. In addition, the floor is transparent, so that's when the go on the platforms is highly exciting. Who is afraid of: there are very friendly and helpful staff, which accompanies on the platform and also shoots a photo of you. Absolutely do it!

  • Especially in clear weather, a great view offers (and even after deep below), if you dare... all our son had no trouble, I itself made it unfortunately not up front. As I by the grating that almost 1,000 meters in the Valley of hell down looked, could I the last meter no longer proceed... but makes nothing, the views are sensational and should make it not to be missed, if it ever gets out for skiing at the Osterfelderkopf.

  • We were as a family here to a great autumn hike (or better a fall walk). Only the great view enjoyed, then ran to the mountain station of the cross corner. Very entertaining thanks to the different stations and feasible also for completely untrained.

  • spectacular view of the mountains and the depth/height when on the platform. Definitely worth a visit. The platform itself is for free
  • Gorgeous view, the platform wasn't as scary as I thought it would have been.
  • Great views. Nice walks for every level. The X platforms are a must!
  • Madness, pure and simple madness... Not for the faint of heart.... Beautiful views though. :)
  • Exceptional views of the highest peaks in Germany, even if the platform itself is not a nice addition to the landscape.
