Dachstein Krippenstein cable car

Obertraun, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • pets allowed
  • All weather
  • Suitable for groups
  • Suitable for pushchairs
  • Suitable for kids (all ages)

In summer, the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car not only takes you to the Schönbergalm, the Dachstein Ice Caves and to the Mammoth Cave without any need to flex those muscles, it also takes you to Obertraun’s local mountain, the Krippenstein at 2100m.

Enjoy the views

You don’t just get to enjoy a fantastic panorama view here, there are also a great deal of hikes suitable for anyone. For instance, we recommend a hike to the spectacular "5fingers" viewing platform - 5 platforms protrude beyond a 500m drop! – a real buzz – or head to the Welterbespirale, which, as well as the fantastic view, also invites you to take it easy on the cosy, relaxing loungers.

The 3rd section of the route takes you to the Gjaidalm station, a perfect starting point for additional hikes on the Dachstein plateau!

Experience a 360° panorama tour on the Dachstein Krippenstein…
