Why it is worth to make holidays in Obertraun
Obertraun is not garish. It is lovely, protected and guarded by the imposing Krippenstein. Where once the river Traun was a means of timber transportation for salt extraction, woodworkers formed a settlement and thus established the present day World Heritage community. Over the course of time, the natural beauty of the area has been recognised, and this today makes Obertraun so attractive to holidaymakers. Whether hiking, walking or biking, Obertraun is perfect with its caves, valley floor and woodland areas.
The Dachstein Krippenstein Cable Car is opened almost all year round and takes you in three stages to very different sites of natural beauty. Stage 1 brings you to the Schönbergalm, from where you can reach the gigantic Mammoth cave and Dachstein Giant Ice Caves. Freezing Temperatures prevail here all year round, so a guided tour on a hot summer day is a good way to cool down. From the second station, the Krippenstein High Plateau, you can hike, take in the stunning views or simply take a deep breath in summer and in winter. The 5fingers viewing platform is spectacular and the trail to the World Heritage Spiral and the Dachstein Shark is surrounded by unspoilt nature. In winter, the ski resort is not far away, and the Dachstein Krippenstein Freesports Arena and the Dachstein West family ski resort are yours to choose from.
Inner strength from the Lake Koopenwinkl
An exceptional location said to have magical powers, under natural and European protection, is the Lake Koppenwinkl. Generally speaking, everything that begins with the word "Koppen" is expected to be beautiful: eg the theme trail along the valley from Obertraun to the Koppenbrüller Cave via the Lake Koopenwinkl and the Koppenwinklalm.
Be sure to look out for current events, such as concerts on the lakeside stage in the lakeside bathing area, folk events or sporting events. As e have said before, the people of Obertraun are joyful people ...
