It is not just Café 3440’s location that is extraordinary; the architecture is too. Like a snowdrift that never melts; like a thick layer of glacier ice sliding over the mountain, the building was erected on the exposed gradient of the Hinterer Brunnenkogel mountain. If you stand up here you are afforded a view similar to that from a sightseeing plane around the Alps: the glaciated landscape of the Pitztal mountains and the highest peaks in the Alps. An attentive observer will notice he is so high above sea level that he can see the curvature of the earth on the horizon. It is well worth taking a trip to the neighbouring valley of the Kaunertal! To reach Cafe 3440 on the Pitztal Glacier, you first jump aboard the Pitzexpress funicular and travel up to 2,800 metres and then take the Wildspitzbahn cable car up to the highest point in the Eastern Alps. The viewing platform at Cafe 3440 offers a 360-degree panoramic view and illustrates the names of the highest peaks in the area. Holders of the Glacier Park Card can visit this Alpine highlight as often as they want.
