Chain bridge and “Glocknerblick” at 2,300 m above sea level

Experience stunning panorama views over the Gastein mountain world 

Perfect sunshine, cloudless sky, a unique mountain panorama – during your holiday at the Hotel EUROPÄISCHER HOF we recommend a visit at Europe’s highest chain bridge and the “Glocknerblick” viewing platform. Here the whole Gasteinertal mountain world is at your feet. A view you will never forget. 

140 m long chain bridge

Spend relaxing and adventurous summer and winter days in Gasteinertal. In the middle of the beautiful mountain world at the Hohe Tauern National Park you will find the “Glocknerblick” viewing platform on the Stubnerkogel summit. But first – make your way over the bridge ...

The bridge is the first chain bridge at 2,300 m above sea level and is also accessible during the winter. A walk on the bridge is an unmissable experience for everyone who is free from giddiness. The chain bridge bounces gently with the wind while you can enjoy views down into the 28 m abyss.

Clear views to the Großglockner

Right opposite the chain bridge you will find the “Glocknerblick” viewing platform. On a round plateau with a 7 m diameter you have free views all around you. And then you will spot him – Austria’s highest mountain – the Großglockner. With 3,798 m the mountain lays in front of you in his majestic and impressive manner. 

For brave visitors

If you dare there is a very special experience to make on the viewing platform. You will find a glass opening at one end of the platform. Here you have a free view down the abyss which will stir your blood!
