You'll definitely need a head for heights if you're planning on visiting the 1,000m high AlpspiX viewing tower, which is to 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.
Each arm of the tower is 24m 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 3m wide and formed of a grid, which will allow snow to pass through it during winter.
