5 Fingers (Austria)
|Elevation||2,108 m (6,916 ft)|
|Location||Upper Austria, Austria|
It has been called the "most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps." The individual fingers, which are approximately 4 m (13 ft) long fingers, are built over a precipice of about 400 m (1,300 ft) depth.
The viewing platform is less than a 20 minute walk from the Krippenstein Station of the Dachstein cable car line.
• On the first finger (from left to right) a metal frame has been mounted, so that visitors can take a framed photo of themselves as a souvenir.
• The second finger is equipped with a glass bottom which allows visitors to look down into the abyss below.
• The third finger is shorter than all others and is not accessible all the way. It has a springboard at the end, and symbolizes the freedom of the mountains.
• The fourth finger has a hole in the floor that allows a free view into the abyss.
• At the fifth finger a telescope is available free of charge.
