Top of Tyrol is a mountain-top viewing platform placed in the Stubai Glacier, Tirolean Alps, one hour away from Innsbruck, Austria. The innovative project completed in 2008 by Astearchitecture is located on the Great Isidor which is centrally positioned in the Stubai Glacier, dividing it into the western half and eastern half. Being situated at a stunning height of 3200 meters above sea level, near the mountain station Schaufeljoch (at 3180 meter altitude), the Top of Tyrol has a unique position that offers a breathtaking 360 degree panorama, stretching from the Zillertal and Stubai Alps to the Dolomites and Chalk Alps. The platform was commissioned by the management of one of the five ski arenas in Austria, in order to attract a large number of tourists in the area and to give them the opportunity to confront with the wild beauty of the Alps.
