5 Fingers Observation Deck
A breathtaking viewing platform over the Alps.
5fingers Observation Deck
Although Hallstatt is the first thing that pops up on maps when viewing the Obertraun in the Austrian Alps, there is much more to the area than a quaint little town. Visitors to the Dachstein Mountains will find a free observation deck that offers astonishing views.
Named 5 Fingers due to the hand-shaped form of the platform, the observation deck reaches out over a 400-meter drop. Each finger allows visitors to view various perspectives of Hallstatt and Hallstättersee.
Opened in October 2006, the platform is a pleasant 15-minute walk from the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car summit station.
The spectacular platform is not for the faint-hearted, as one of the floor fingers is made entirely of glass.
