Experience the fascination
of Dachstein mountains

We discover the extensive Dachstein plateau area, enjoying the amazing panoramic view over the multi-summited massif and its glaciers – a perfect scenic match!

Description: Reaching one of the most beautiful scenery in Europe by cable car, where we leave the mountain station Krippenstein and cross the ski area to hike the extensive, remote and lonely karst plateau with our snowshoes. Funnel-shaped sinkholes, sharp-edged limestone cliffs, small ponds as well as the well-trodden footpaths have disappeared under a thick blanket of snow. Only mighty mountain shapes and scattered tops of mountain pines stick out from it. Thanks to the snow, which has compensated all bumps, we hike almost effortlessly through this fascinating landscape, uphill, downhill, and enjoying the superb panoramic view.

Given favourable weather we hike over the karst plateau "Am Stein" towards Heilbronner Kreuz. This was built to commemorate ten students and three teachers from Heilbronn.

On Maundy Thursday, 1954, despite repeated warnings, they ascended to hike the Dachstein plateau when they got lost in a blizzard and froze to death. It took nine days, when the rescue teams found the first victims.


Not very difficult snowshoe hike but needing some effort. It addresses to inexperienced as well as to regular hillwalkers in good health conditions.
