The 1,000 metre high AlpspiX viewing tower will open in southern Germany on July 4. The towering structure is situated in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen region of the country and provides panoramic views of surrounding Hoellental and Garmisch, reports The Daily Mail, London.
Each arm of the tower is 24 metre long, crossing in an ‘X' shape over an abyss at the base of the Alpspitze mountain, while jutting out 13m over an empty void, with the other 11m anchored in rock.
At the end of each arm, a glass wall offers a unique view of the alpine surroundings.
Each arm of the ‘X' is just 3 metre wide and formed of a grid, which will allow snow to pass through it during winter.
