Nature Park Schönbergalm

Obertraun, Oberösterreich, Österreich

The lovingly designed Schönbergalm Nature Park at the middle station of the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car invites you to look, marvel and relax.

Enjoy nature on the Dachstein Krippenstein with all your senses

The narrow  Mammoth Cave is made of larch wood and allows you your first glimpses into an amazing underground labyrinth. For football fans there is a "natural pitch", and for those seeking an adrenalin rush, there is a climbing wall designed by Heli Putz.

There is an "adventure climb", and a so-called "bad weather station" where you can gain an insight into how bats live. At the nearby "Bamhittl" from where you have stunning views down to Hallstatt and across the entire Inner Salzkammergut region.

Exhibition: Dachstein under climate change inside the stone cabins

The Alps are a region that is particularly changed by the changing climate of the world. Four themed huts on the Schönbergalm, at the middle station of the Krippenstein cable car in Obertraun, depict the "Alpine Spaces in Climate Change". Several panels in each hut each deal with a sub-aspect - from "Spaceship Earth" to cultural-historical backgrounds and the sensitive mountain landscape on the effects on alpine tourism. The exciting presentation of important findings about one of the most burning topics of our time is available free of charge.
Find out more about the different facets of climate changes at informativ display boards, impressive installations, historic exhibits and interactive hadson activity stations.
