If you venture on the suspension bridge on the Dachstein, there is nothing under you - except 400 meters deep. An impressive mountain panorama in front of you ensures breathtaking moments. 100 meters long, the suspension bridge on the Dachstein spans the rocks of the Dachstein massif.
If that was not enough of a thrill for you, then at the end of the bridge you can still climb the "stairway to nothing": 14 narrow steps lead you down to a glass podium at dizzying heights. Here you stand directly in the cliff 400 meters above the wall.

The Dachstein suspension bridge promises a thrill with a view, which, with the “stairs to nowhere”, provides breathtaking views deep and wide.
Austria's highest suspension bridge with a connection to the Dachstein Ice Palace is an attraction that should not be missed. If you dare to climb the suspension bridge, you will find a depth of about 400 m under your feet. An impressive mountain panorama in front of you and the view of the rocks of the Dachstein mountain range below you ensure breathtaking moments.
The inspection of the approximately 1 m wide and 100 m long bridge may turn out to be a little test of courage for some. But the 1.3 m high railing and steel ropes ensure absolute safety high in the air.
The suspension bridge can withstand winds of up to 250 km / h, can carry loads of up to 750 kilograms per square meter of snow and has a gradient of 12 percent.
When building this structure, 30,000 individual parts had to be assembled high in the air. A total of 63 tons of steel were used.
At the other end of the suspension bridge, you have the opportunity to venture onto the “stairs into nowhere”, where you have the unique feeling of floating freely in the air and still being safe. Experience the Dachstein from its most beautiful and exciting side. After the high altitude adventure, you can also enjoy a visit to the Ice Palace.
