Aussichtsplattform AlpspiX, Garmisch-Partenkirchen

(4.6/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • 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.
