About
High above, in 3.029 metres above sea level and directly at the border to the Hohe Tauern National Park, you can feel alpine nature with all your senses. An alpine experience, which is usually reserved for experienced alpinists on their mountain tours, turns into a leisurely excursion at the Kitzsteinhorn in 3.000 metres above sea level. Reached easily with the comfortable cable cars, the Gipfelwelt 3000 is a popular excursion destination all year round. The view from the viewing platforms "Top of Salzburg“ and "National Park Gallery“ is marvellous. The glaciated peaks of the Hohe Tauern National Park glisten in the sunshine and Austria's highest mountain, the Grossglockner, peeks at eye level through the clouds. Austria's mightiest mountains are at your fingertips here. You can experience the glacier close up on a summerly slide in the Ice Arena below the peak.

Glad it was open due to frequent bad weather. Going back can be exhausting. Stroller friendly. Great views await at the end

At the foot there is the village of Kaprun, which is the accommodation base for the resort. An alpine mountain peak with a height of 3,203 m above sea level. in the High Tauern massif.

The views to remember

We visited the Gipfel of the Kitzteinhor on a august day. There were still glaciers on the mountain tops, and we were able to enjoy some snow adventures (sleds). Scenery is beautiful upthere.

Breathtaking

Views not particularly good when we visited due to inclement weather but at one point a white out added to the sense of atmosphere. Really is a must if visiting this area and the walk through the mountain tunnel awe inspiring complete with fabulous displays and sound effects... well worth the effort visiting irrespective of weather although clear blue skies probably a bonus!

I wish I could be alone for a few minutes, just so I could absorb the serenity of the landscape, as well as the beauty of the scenery

You can find a lot of information about the mountain in here. There is also a nice view and you can take a photo of yourself which is free of charge.

Worth a break from skiing to visit
Jan 2020 • Couples
Excellent facility at the very top of Saalbach-Hinterglemm /Kaprun area. Bus 660 from Saalbach-Hinterglemm runs every mins and takes about 30mins to far end of Kaprun to pick up the Panorama cable car. Then it’s a series of bubbles/cable cars to the very top - fine for walkers. You can’t from the very top so skiers may as well leaves skis at the Alpincentre station and go up unburdened. At the top are 2 restaurants (service and self) and viewing platforms from which you can see the edge of the Austrian alps. One of the platforms is reached by a 360m tunnel through the mountain which goes downhill gradually (very wide, flat and well lit). Along the tunnel are various information points and exhibits. Tip is to save looking at these for the way back up - at that altitude you be glad of the excuse to take a break!
