After the convivial ascent with the Gosau slow train we walk on historic paths through the “Löckermoos” blanket raised bog. Passing the small moor lake and fabulous karst caves we discover rare plants and the still active grindstone quarries. We enjoy the view of the stunning mountain panorama of the Gosaukamm and a break at a rustic mountain hut.
Sink into unique nature
The “Löckermoos” and the associated Löckersee lake in Gosau is one of Europe’s most beautiful raised bogs. The small lake with impressive views of the mighty tines of Gosaukamm lies at an elevation of about 1400 meters and is popular with hikers, both big and small. The word "Löckern" comes from the Gosau dialect and refers to the nature protected mountain pine. When planning your vacation to the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut, you should not miss a visit to this natural wonder. Numerous "Guided walks" or the ascent with the Gosau slow train make this natural gem one of the most beautiful destinations in the Gosau Valley.
