Hallstättersee Lake, Austria

This visitor attraction opened at the beginning of October 2006. Also known as the "World Heritage View Point", it is in the shape of a hand with 5 fingers. Built 500 metres above ground it protrudes from a sheer rock face.

Over 5 platforms (the five fingers), each in a different design, you can put your head for heights to the test and enjoy unique views down over Hallstatt, the Hallstättersee lake and the inner Salzkammergut region.

The 5 different levels, each 4 x 1 m in size, offer spectacular insight and views. One of the platforms is made entirely from glass and another enables visitors to gain their own personal view of the Hallstatt World Heritage site through a large Baroque picture frame. The ‘5fingers’ are illuminated until midnight and can be seen from far and wide, even at night.

Affording stunning panoramic views of the World Heritage Region, this has become a no. 1 attraction in the Dachstein/Krippenstein Region. The Five fingers Viewing Platform is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car summit station.
