Above ground More than just hiking!

A wonderful high plateau and plenty of variety awaits you at 2100 metres in the heart of the Salzkammergut!

Here at Dachstein Krippenstein you'll find everything a hiker, climber, or leisure tourist could want. The cable cars transport you up to the mountain, enabling you to conquer the mountain with no effort at all. 

First stop is the Schönbergalm (middle station/ section 1), the small nature paradise to relax and explore, and the starting point for the visit of the caves (Giant Ice- & Mammut cave).

Further on we ride up to the Krippenstein (mountain station / section 2) to the viewing platform 5fingers, the  World Heritage spiral, the World Heritage view and to the Dachstein shark, the attraction at Heilbronner circular trail

Highlight for the little ones and the young at heart is the petting zoo at the Lodge am Krippenstein and the sheep on the Krippenstein, which graze along the edge of the trails.
