• The Glacier.
Explorer Tour

Through 4 climate zones from 768 to 3,029 meters

Intriguing insights into nature, including glacial ice, native eagles and the function of barrier forests, explained by an experienced National Park Ranger. This new winter theme tour for visitors interested in nature leads from the valley all the way up to the “Top of Salzburg” viewing platform at 3,029 m. 

A breathtaking panorama and never-before-seen perspectives

Thanks to the EXPLORER cabin on the 3K K-onnection, which opens in November 2019, everyone becomes an explorer. The unique interior design makes it possible to enjoy unforgettable 360° vistas extending from Zeller See to the Grossglockner. Taking in the eagle’s-eye view, you will float comfortably up through 4 climate zones, gaining 2,261 vertical meters in the process. 

Discover Gipfelwelt 3000 & the National Park Gallery

With your destination reached, you will still have plenty of time to pay a visit to Gipfelwelt 3000 with Cinema 3000 along with the Top of Salzburg viewing platform (3,029 m).

A supplemental tour of the National Park Gallery is offered later at 1 pm. This is a 360 m-long info tunnel about high-alpine natural phenomena, leading to the “National Park Gallery” lookout platform.  

And as a perfect conclusion, you might wish to stop in at the Gipfel Restaurant, Salzburg’s highest restaurant at 3,029 m. 

 

Special guided tours are available for groups of at least 25 persons.
