The 360-metre-long tunnel leads from the summit station of the Kitzsteinhorn in over 3.000 metres above sea level to the "National Park Gallery“ viewing platform. The bright light and the marvellous view after the mystic darkness of the tunnel almost take your breath away.
The platform at the south flank of the Kitzsteinhorn protrudes directly into the pristine wilderness of the Hohe Tauern National Park and offers a marvellous view to a sea of peaks of the three thousand metres high mountains. To the south is Austria's highest mountain, the 3.798-metre-high Grossglockner.
To the west, the glaciated peak of the Großvenediger glistens in the sun and winter sport fans enjoy natural snow below the glacier.
In summer, a secured path leads from the viewing platform downhill to the Ice Arena where you can enjoy tobogganing and sliding in summer snow.
