The Dachstein Krippenstein is a true adventure mountain that makes every wish come true. Nature lovers seeking peace and quiet as well as adrenalin junkies will find what they are looking for.

A mountain for all your dreams!

The Dachstein Krippenstein in Obertraun fulfils all wishes. You can reach the 2 100 m high Dachstein Krippenstein very easily with the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car. Already on the ascent you will be impressed by the beautiful karst landscape.

Comfortable hikes to the excursion destinations

The World Heritage View with the brilliant view of the Dachstein awaits you at the mountain station. 

Only a few minutes walk further on you will reach the Heilbronn Chapel and the World Heritage Spiral. Wonderful views await you here too and invite you to linger. 

You want to enjoy exactly these views - but also need a little action? Then walk to the 5 Fingers Viewing Platform! On the five differently designed footbridges you stand 400 metres above the abyss. This adrenaline rush and the unique landscapes will remain unforgettable. Of course, a photo as proof of your head for heights should not be missing.

The Dachstein Shark  photo point, which is particularly popular with children, is located directly on the family-friendly Heilbronn circular trail. The circular hiking trail takes you through the karst landscape past sinkholes and on to the Heilbronner Cross. This Cross reminds of the Dachstein tragedy in 1954, when 13 people lost their lives.
After a further march you reach the Gjaid Alm. A cosy sun terrace invites you to take a break. 
You return with the 3rd section of the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car back to the mountain station.
