Hiking in Dachstein West

Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
Where skiers in the Dachstein West ski region find their carving bliss in winter, lush green alpine pastures and gentle mountain peaks with fantastic views of the Austrian Alps and the Salzkammergut invite you to go hiking and walking in summer.

A stop in one of our rustic alpine huts is of course also part of the experience!

Slowing down between Dachstein, Gosaukamm, Bischofsmütze and Tennengebirge

Between Dachstein, Gosaukamm, Bischofsmütze and Tennengebirge mountains, you can not only enjoy a "refreshing" holiday in the truest sense of the word, but also slow down and relax.

The hiking area extends over two provinces and the three villages Gosau in Upper Austria and Russbach and Annaberg in Salzburg.

With the unforgettable views of the Gosaukamm and the impressive Dachstein glacier, everyday life is quickly forgotten.
