A thousand meters above the ground, the X-shaped viewing platform offers magnificent views of the mighty peaks of the Zugspitze region. The Alpspitz cable car leads directly to the AlpspiX all year round and is also the starting point for the family-friendly summit adventure trail on the Osterfelderkopf and the pleasure adventure trail down to the Kreuzeck.
