Address: | Visit Website
City/Town: Bergisel Ski Jump
The Bergisel Ski Jump is characterised by a breathtaking view of Innsbruck, the charm of a ski jumping venue with an Olympic past and modern architecture.
The tower, designed by star architect Zaha Hadid, the “Bergisel Sky” panorama restaurant and the panorama terrace are easily accessible with two elevators.
It is much more convenient and faster however, to ascend to the tower with the new inclined elevator.
The elevator transports up to 350 people per hour, covering the 250 meter stretch between the entrance and the tower in 2 minutes.
Visitors get on the elevator here and ride up to the “Bergisel Sky” restaurant.
A three-storey steel construction has been added to the tower’s concrete shaft, containing the restaurant, panorama platform and rescue station.
The projecting levels protrude up to 12 meters beyond the tower’s shaft.
The visitor elevator travels up to the terrace level of approx. 43.5 meters.
However, the supporting structure for the steep in-run bridge was then executed with no supports over a 68.5 meter long incline with an incline of up to 35 degrees; a so-called “fish stomach”, consisting of a steel lattice formwork trough with steel trusses.
Hereby the preload force is transferred into the stiffening girder as compressive force.
The end cross girders and the spatial diagonal piping in the support frame take on the lateral distribution of the centric preload forces in the lateral frame supports.
