Panoramic terrace with Sky Plate

Among the main reasons why hikers enjoy climbing mountains are the magnificent views that await at the top. Now there is an even easier way to enjoy the landscape at the Gartnerkofel.

Accessible both on foot and via the Gartnerkofel chairlift, the brand new Gartnerkofel terrace is the ideal place to soak up the scenery as you let your eyes wander from the Jôf di Montasio in Italy and the iconic Mangàrt to the south all the way round to Austria’s highest mountain, the mighty Großglockner, to the north-west. The terrace is equipped with number of information boards and a Viscope displaying the name of the various summits on the horizon.

Visitors also have the chance to experience the peaks at first hand thanks to rock samples from some of the region’s most iconic mountains. Each sample includes details of the mountain it was taken from and its exact geological composition.

Adrenaline kick for high flyers!

Guests with nerves of steel can pay a visit to the Sky Plate to experience the ultimate rush. This free-standing steel platform high above the valley floor is the perfect way to get a birds-eye view of the mountains. Another tip for those with a head for heights is the Däumling via ferrata, a fixed-rope climbing route scaling 150 vertical metres to the highest point on the rock formation and across a 40m hanging bridge.
