Stubnerkogel Bad Gastein
The Stubnerkogel, already well known as a ski mountain, has also grown into a scenic hotspot in recent years. With a 140 m-long suspension footbridge and the “Glocknerblick” viewing platform, it is now home to two attractions that treat visitors to magical scenery. The “Rock Path”, with striking lookout points of its own, adds the perfect finishing touches to this mountain experience.
Europe’s highest suspension footbridge in Gastein
The 140 meters-long suspension footbridge on the Stubnerkogel in Bad Gastein simultaneously breaks two records: It is the first suspension bridge at 2300 meters, and it can be walked across all year round.
It begins right next to the restaurant in the upper terminal of the Stubnerkogel mountain lift and leads you on a 28 m walk above the abyss to the Stubnerkogel transmitter station. You definitely need a head for heights if you decide to step out onto this swaying construction, since the balustrades and floor are both transparent.
Wonderful mountain views of the Austrian Alps
Located across from the footbridge is yet another attraction – the “Glocknerblick” viewing platform. A fantastic 360° panorama as well as the sight of Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner, are certain to set the pulses of all true mountain lovers racing with pure joy.
Stubnerkogel “Rock Path”
The Stubnerkogel Rock Path is actually a hiking loop that starts and finishes by the upper terminal of the Stubnerkogel mountain lift.
It begins around 400 meters below the actual lift terminal at 2,217 meters above sea level. You can count on no shortage of adrenaline rushes along the way, since this trail, constructed in parts out of steel, takes you right against the rock face, treating you to breathtaking views, including through the grating beneath your feet.
