Family hike on the Zwieselalm

Exploring the magnificent mountainous landscape around King Dachstein with all the family!

Gosaukammbahn Cable Car

Take the Gosaukammbahn from the Lake Gosau to over 1.500 m. The trip by mountain gondola, with breath-taking views of the Gosau Valley, the lake and King Dachstein and his glacier, is a thrilling experience for visitors of all ages. When you reach the top,  follow the well-marked paths, most of which are suitable for pushchairs, as they pass through easy terrain. In just a matter of minutes you will reach the first of the catered huts.

The following photo gallery can be navigated with the arrow keys (left, right).

There is lots to discover for families...

There is much for children to see and discover on the Zwieselam. As well as being in delightful, picturesque surroundings there are cows and horses who spend the summer months on this high mountain pasture land. You will come across one rustic mountain hut after another where you can stop off for a rest and some refreshments before you continue your familiy hike. Enjoy traditional snacks and home made cakes before starting out again. There is a lovely circular trail on the Zwieselalm, or if you are feeling more adventurous, you can walk back down into the valley. This is not suitable for those with pushchairs, however. The Zwieselalm: family friendly, rich and varied, and always great fun!
