Iceman Ötzi Peak

Meran/Merano and environs
from center of
Standing at the summit cross and enjoying the breathtaking panoramic view of the mountain world as well as the Iceman did 5,300 years ago - this is now possible on the new viewing platform „Iceman Ötzi Peak. “

The route up to the viewing platform at 3,251 meters above sea level begins in Maso Corto. The Glacier Cable Car takes you up to 3,212 meters, to the mountain station and the Glacier Hotel Grawand, the highest hotel in Europe.

The steel construction, designed and built by South Tyrolean technicians and companies, can be reached safely and comfortably via a staircase with handrail in 10 minutes from the mountain station.

Once at the top, you will discover the snowfield of the Similaun (3,606 m), where the oldest and most famous glacier mummy in the world was found.

You can also catch a glimpse of the Alto Giogo Glacier and the watershed that forms the national border between Austria and Italy, as it were:  Up here, the water flows once into the Black Sea and once into the Adriatic.

The path of Transhumance can also be seen from the platform. This centuries-old tradition was recently listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
