What could be nicer than being on an Alpine pasture with the whole family during a holiday in the Salzkammergut? The large “Plankensteinalm“ pasture In Gosau is one of the most popular excursion destinations for hikers and mountain bikers.
With our tour, the long way up to the Alpine pasture is eased with the rustic Gosau slow train. We’ll get up the mountain in comfort. Once at the top, we’ll embark on the trail of the gnome children. We’ll pay the hunter and lumberjack gnomes an unforgettable visit. Then it's time for tasty delicacies from the pasture. In the "Leutgebhütte" hut on the Plankensteinalm a ploughman’s lunch and more await you along with a fresh glass of milk from the cow. The panoramic view of the imposing Dachstein massif is free of charge.
Final with delicacies
The conclusion of our leisurely family hike, for children from 5 years old, is the return journey with the Gosau slow train back into the Gosau valley. Fancy experiencing pasture life in person? Out and about with other families and make new friends. Just simply relax and give the children their freedom? Then register now for the Alpine pasture hike with Betty in Gosau. See you at the Plankensteinalm in Gosau!
