Marco Waltenspiel and Chris Espen hopped on the helicopter this morning to ascend to roughly 3,900m above sea level and right above the Austro-German border.

Just on the Austrian side they exited and proceed to head towards the German border and the Zugspitz viewing platform.

With a rough 45 degrees angle of descent and at a speed of close to 200 km/h it was quite a tricky feat to squeeze through the 6m wide gate at the top of the mountain…but see for yourself
