Crystal Cube

If you are seeking culinary delights at a whole new level, you can now find them in a unique location: The Crystal Cube. Close to the “Z1” viewing platform, at a height of 2,600 m you will find a larger-than-life inclined cube structure. The exterior is made from mirrored glass, meaning that no one can peek in from the outside, which gives you an extra-terrestrial feel. But as soon as you step inside the cube, your perspective changes dramatically. Thanks to a facade made entirely from glass, you have fantastic 360-degree views of the winter mountain panorama. Furthermore, the inclined position of the cube creates the impression that you are perched on the face of the mountain.
