Important notice - please read!
As of 3rd November 2020, all events throughout Austria have been canceled as security measures against the global Covid 19 pandemic. Whilst this is initially until 7th of January 2021, how it will continue after that is still unclear. Your editorial team.
The popular saying states that the early bird catches the worm. Therefore the cable car onto the Krippenstein in Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt is offering the popular Early Bird cable car rides to all ski tourers. Each weekend (Saturday & Sunday) and on public holidays, the first gondola onto the adventure mountain in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut, will depart at 7:30 hrs. Ideal for all recreational athletes and explorers!
Note!: The ski pistes are closed and no longer prepared, signposted and secured after the end of the winter season! Descend at your own risk off-piste. From an altitude of 1000 to 900 meters, the touring skis must be taken off several times to overcome greater distances. Tour-goer trips will take place until further notice.
