Time travel in the “Freilichtmuseum” (open-air museum)

What setting, within the Salzkammergut, would be more suited for a medieval market than the historic “Freilichtmuseum” (open-air museum) in the picturesque Gosau valley? From the 8th to 10th of June 2018, enthused visitors from all over the world to the foot of the Gosaukamm, can experience the flair of an old culture and get a picture of the way of life, the clothes, the craft and the music of the Middle Ages.

There’s lots to see

On this summer’s weekend, you will meet a lot of jugglers, minstrels and other actors, and on the "market place" many goods will be offered for sale. From fragrant soaps and creams to wood and blacksmith crafts, fabrics and woollen goods, jewellery and all sorts of trinkets. There will also be lots on offer to for dry throats and the hungry stomachs – there is simply too much to list. Let yourself be surprised and come to the medieval market in Gosau from 8th to 10th June 2018 in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut.

Family Holiday in Gosau

Nestled among the majestic Dachstein, the imposing peaks of the Gosaukamm, the Kalmberg and Plassen lies the Gosau Valley at an elevation of approximately 730 metres above sea level. The romantic Gosau Lake, the hiking area of the Zwieselalm and the Löckermoss bog are considered alongside the comfortable pick-up train and the prehistoric forest park as absolute highlights for a family holiday in Gosau. Rustic mountain huts and gentle mountain meadows stir the souls of every hiking enthusiast. Over 65 kilometres of ski track cause cross-country skiing fans’ hearts to beat faster. With 84 kilometres of slopes and 37 modern lifts, both beginning and veteran downhill skiers can find ideal conditions in the ski region of Dachstein West. Romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides, experience-filled snowshoe hikes, adventuresome diving excursions, a plethora of tourism sites throughout the Gosau Valley and a wide selection of free-time activities complete the diverse package of holiday possibilities for both summer and winter. We hope to see you on holiday in Gosau!
