... the Sisi Trail

The excursion to the panoramic platform Kaiserblick can be combined with an exploration of the Sisi Trail. The Elisabeth Chapel is the counterpart to the imperial footbridge, which is dedicated to Franz Joseph I. It is the destination and starting point of the Sisi Trail. The empress visited the Schmittenhöhe back in the 19th century to experience a very special sunrise against a unique mountain backdrop. 

... Lake Zell

The glistening waters of Lake Zell immediately catch the eye: if you look closely, you can even recognise the MS Schmittenhöhe from the Schmitten boat fleet gliding across the lake.

... thirty 3,000-metre peaks

The mountain panorama around the panoramic platform is gigantic. It is not for nothing that the Schmittenhöhe is nicknamed the ‘panorama mountain’. The surrounding mountains can be seen up close with telescopes.  Austria's highest mountains, the Grossglockner and the Dachstein, which can be viewed up close, are particularly worthy of mention.
