The majestic Dachstein forms the impressive backdrop for a truly exceptional winter sports experience on the border of Upper Austria and Salzburger Land.

Hiking region Gosau

Hiking along the Dachstein

In Gosau, the Gosaukammbahn cable car floats down from Lake Gosausee towards the impressive rocky peaks of the Gosaukamm and takes hikers and wallowers into a world of inviting Alpine pastures and varied hiking routes. Families with small children can look forward to the pushchairs free of charge at the Gosaukamm cable car mountain station on the Zwieselalm in Gosau. The all-terrain models take you comfortably to one of the rustic mountain inns and enjoy the idyllic alpine landscape with lush green meadows and grazing cows and horses.

The 40 metre long panoramic ladder to the sky is the top attraction on the Zwieselalm for climbing enthusiasts. Free-floating and full of adrenalin, you climb up the ladder to heaven with a fantastic view of the Dachstein glacier, the surrounding mountains and the entire Gosau valley. The Intersport Via Ferrata leads in four stages over the first peaks of the Gosaukamm to the summit cross of the Großer Donnerkogel.
