Viewing Platform on Masnerkopf Mountain

Serfaus

Decorated with a sculpture of a mighty bearded vulture, the viewing platform at the top of the Masnerkopf mountain in Serfaus is a fine place to take a break from skiing or hiking to admire the incredible panorama stretching out in front of you.

Hop on down in the valley, hop off above the clouds. Sounds good? That is exactly what visitors to Serfaus can experience thanks to the state-of-the-art cable car leading up onto the Masnerkopf mountain. In winter this gondola transports skiers and snowboarders to the highest point in the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis ski resort. Instead of clipping in and zooming off down the slopes straight away, it is well worth taking a few moments to visit the nearby viewing platform with its sculpture of a bearded vulture and admire the white peaks stretching into the distance. In summer the viewing platform can only be reached on foot. Perched at 2,828 metres above sea level, this mighty construction pays honour to the largest bird in the Alps, the bearded vulture, with a bronze statue showing off the bird's massive wingspan of up to three metres. Visitors who stand next to the statue made by local artist Walter File suddenly feel very small indeed and realise just how breathtaking Mother Nature is. The platform has information boards with details on the life and habitat of the bearded vulture, panoramic maps with the names of the surrounding mountains, and an interactive telescope.
