The sinuous and dynamic form of the main tower accommodates a restaurant, viewing terrace and the ski jump starting ramp. Athletic visitors can climb the 455 steps to the main tower, but it can be reached more comfortably in just a few minutes by funicular then a visitor lift which takes you up the tower to the café and restaurant and the panoramic viewing platform, which offers a 360o view of the Tirol’s mountain scenery. The installation is one of the most popular visitor attractions in the Tirol, open daily from 9.00 to 17.00 hrs.
