A breathtaking panorama and never-before-seen perspectives

Thanks to the EXPLORER cabin on the 3K K-onnection 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 metres 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.
