    On top of the Krippenstein stands the World Heritage Spiral. From the upper viewing platform you have an incomparable view of the world natural heritage Dachstein. If you like, you can take a photo with the built-in camera on the viewing platform and pick up your photo later at the top station of the cable car.

    World Heritage Spiral
    Relaxing at the top of the Dachstein!

    A few minutes away from the mountain station of the Dachstein-Krippenstein cable car, there is the Welterbespirale observation deck, which is equipped with cozy rest areas and loungers and invites you to relax at 2100 meters above sea level on the Krippenstein.

    The viewing platform Welterbespirale not only offers a fabulous view, but also informs about various World Heritage sites and their architectural and landscape features.

    And anyone who not only wants to refresh their geographic knowledge but also wants to capture this experience in the picture, has the best opportunity at the new photo point. By means of a remote trigger, every summitexist can take a picture of himself and download this photo later on the Internet - an unforgettable memory of a wonderful day on the mountain.
