From the history

On the way to Hohen Kalmberg you will get some exciting impressions of the history of the region - especially the religious history. In the Kalmoos Church, a church in a cave discovered on the way to the summit, the Protestants of the region secretly practised their faith during the Counter-Reformation. The people of Gosau ("Gosauer") as well as the inhabitants of Bad Goisern ("Goiserer") had to accept a march of more than 2 hours to follow their faith.

 

"Thousands of prayers, despair, hope and unshakable creeds have colored the patina of these cave walls..."

Fun fact

The Native American is regularly "wiped his nose" by the members of the mountain rescue service. So the grasses and loose rocks are removed.
