How to climb to the most picturesque observation deck of the Alps in Salzburg
At an altitude of 2,100 meters you will find one of the most beautiful viewing platforms in the Austrian Alps. Due to the unusual shape of its walkways, this deck is called the "Five Fingers". Each of the "fingers" has its symbolic feature: a frame for posing for the camera, transparent floor, free telescope, viewing hole in the floor over a precipice; Only one finger is closed (it is apparently symbolizes inaccessibility of the mountains).
