Aussichtsplattform AlpspiX, Garmisch-Partenkirchen

4.6
#1 of 6 in Sightseeing in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Lookout Tourist Spot
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.

  • We went not directly with the railway to the viewing platform, but have migrated there. We are driven by bus to Hammersbach and from there through the Höllentalklamm (great recommendation!) up to the hut and then over the cattle pass hiked up the mountain and eventually arrived at the AlpspiX platform, where we again went down to enjoying the view for 17 euros. You must be reasonably fit and need good walking shoes for the hike. We took about six hours for everything and were constantly gobsmacked by the wonderful views and the adventurous exciting way, despite light rain. By the way, in heavy rain, we would discourage since it simply lacks the great views. The AlpsiX platform, which provided us with a glimpse of a part of our hike, then was the icing on the cake.

  • It is accessible from the station of the cable car that you upload to the Alpspitze. Do not charge for uploading to the platform. From it you can make some incredible photos of the Valley. It is important to not suffering from vertigo, the feeling of being in the air is enormous.

  • Observation deck hangs with wire shelf, the several hundred meters above the abyss. Höhenängstliche people!

  • Awesome view over Garmisch and the surroundings. Easy to get there with the lift.
  • Very impressive view over the whole region. Restaurants at the top where you can enjoy a lunch
  • Awesome snowboarding place, long traks, little bit steep and not many forest parts that are possible to go through.
  • Great on a sunny day.
  • Bring your camera and make the best panoramic pictures of the year!
