Iceman Ötzi Peak

Viewing the Italian Alps has never been easier thanks to a new observation platform located 10,666 feet above sea level. Iceman Ötzi Peak designed and built the deck with vertical steel slats that allow visitors to step close to the edge for an unobstructed view. Only one area is partially enclosed in glass and juts out from the platform, drawing attention to the spot where Ötzi — the world’s oldest glacier mummy — was discovered. With only a few support beams underneath the steel structure, Iceman Ötzi Peak is also designed to give guests the sensation of floating above the surrounding mountains. Iceman Ötzi Peak is now open and free for visitors.
