An amazing experience awaits as you are whisked up to this viewing platform in a series of cable cars and funicular. Pause, or pose, at the top for a photo at 3029 metres. Marvel at the sheer beauty of nature. A highly recommended 'must-do' activity!

Lots of history in the tunnel, and great views from the observation platform. The tunnel to the observation platform is cold and damp inside, so warm clothing is required. Walk back from the observation platform is uphill. At 3000m, walking uphill may be harder for...More

Hello Raf, I was using the Zell am See-Kaprun Summer Card. I was all free to unlimited use. But I understand that there are restrictions in July/August and I think the cost day pass is around 40 euro.

Hello, you can buy a standard "Gipfelwelt 3000" ticket at the cash desk directly at the valley station of the cable car.
