Gipfelwelt 3000 in Kaprun

Enjoy an awe-inspiring experience at the highest summit in the Salzburg region

Fog. Thick, swirling fog that filters through any winter coat. I start to shiver. I look through the cable car window into a real pea souper. The Kitzsteinhorn mountain is supposed to be somewhere up there. I am not convinced yet. The December weather is too grim and gloomy at the valley station even though it is 911 metres above sea level. The Gletscherjet 1 lift takes me to the 2,000 metre point in a quarter of an hour. Then something unbelievable happens: almost as if someone has flipped a switch, the sun suddenly breaks through the blanket of fog and reveals a breathtaking view of the surrounding alpine landscape.

The next cable car transports me to the Alpine Centre and from here I travel to the summit station on the summit cable car. I can hardly contain my excitement as I sit down in the gondola. The view over the surrounding alpine world is absolutely stunning. I have left a bank of fog far behind me, or rather far below me. Salzburg’s highest panoramic viewing platform is located at 3,029 metres above sea level. It is a fantastic sightseeing attraction that has been designed for everyone to enjoy. I share the viewing platform with skiers, children and tourists from India. It is a fabulous way to admire the view of over 200 alpine peaks without having to pack a rucksack and put on a pair of crampons! What you still could need: A pair of sunglasses. Unfortunately, I left mine at my hotel.

The second highlight of the trip occurs after I have enjoyed some refreshments in the summit restaurant (Kaspressknödelsuppe – beef broth with cheese dumpling – what else?). I walk through a 360-metre-long tunnel to the next platform. The tunnel serves as a gallery where there are different information boards that provide information on various topics, such as how the High Tauern mountain range was formed. I am glad to be able to take a break at the different stations. I am beginning to feel the effects of the thin air. And then I finally stand outside on the platform at eye level with the Grossglockner. When viewed from Kitzsteinhorn, the highest mountain in Austria doesn’t actually look so high. I enjoy basking in the rays of the sun before I journey back down into the valley at 4.00 pm on the final gondola of the day. Pea soup – here I come!
