GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) — A new platform offering stunning views of the Alps has opened in the mountains of southern Germany.

The AlpspiX platform opened to the public on Sunday. The X-shaped platform is made of two arms each 82 feet (25 meters) long and ending with a wall of glass.

It offers visitors a unique, unfettered view of the nation's highest peak, the Zugspitze, and the surrounding alpine panorama.
