The path around the lake Gosau is a beautiful walk which can be enjoyed with the view to the Dachstein.

Due to the danger of avalanches the path is closed during the winter season.

A stroll along the "lake Gosau", with its world famous rocky back-drop is an opportunity to enjoy natural beauty at its best. The water is crystal clear and is drinking quality.

We begin our walk with a view of the Dachstein mountain range and make our way along the left side of the lake: on the sunny side steep wooded sections alternate with vertical rock faces . These are covered in places by heather and in the spring there are wonderful displays of yellow alpine primroses.

Enjoy the freshness and tranquility of the woodland and take a rest on the soft cushoning of the mosses.

We return along the shaded side of the lake and pass by uprooted tree trunks. In 1987 an avalanche tore down a wide expanse of the woodland here as it reached the valley bottom.

Experience a 360° panorama tour through Gosau valley...
