The water-bearing Koppenbrüller Cave is located in the valley and can be accessed via a short walk along a secure trail by the charming Koppentraun river. Admire dripstone features which date back thousands of years and listen to the crashing of the invisible brook inside the mountain. A visit to the Koppenbrüller Cave, the youngest of the 3 Dachstein caves, offers an impressive insight into the underground waterways of the inside of the Dachstein. Pathways secured against flooding mean that guests can visit in safety, even in bad weather!
A fascinating tour at Koppenbrüller Cave:
From the Koppenrast guesthouse at the end of the Obertraun resort, a comfortable footpath leads along the Traun to the cave entrance (approx. 15 mins). The cave entrance is a karst spring which only overflows with any significance following very heavy rainfall or snowmelt.
The endless expanse of the Dachstein massif from inside – the giant Cave is one of the largest karst caves in the world impresses with its size, variety of shapes and spectacular artistic installations – something you would never expect to see beneath the ground! Daily from 16th May to 2nd November 2020. First tour at 8:40 hrs.
