Attention early risers
Would you like to experience something unusual and unique during your holiday in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut? Then we recommend the popular sunrise trips to the 2000 meter high Krippenstein in Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt!
A Place in the Sun
Because when the day slowly awakens in the early morning, Lake Hallstatt still lies quietly in its lake bed and the morning dew drips from the leaves - then it's time for an unusual pleasure experience! Almost exclusively, you float quietly and comfortably up to 2000 metres above sea level on the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car, where the breath-taking natural scenery of the Dachstein massif lies at your feet. If you want to experience the full range of the panorama, we recommend the approximately fifteen minute walk to the World Heritage Spiral or the almost 45 minute walk to the FiveFingers viewing platform.
This incomparable morning is rounded off with a rustic breakfast at the picturesque Gjaidalm. A seat has already been reserved on the panorama terrace of the Schilcherhaus. Freshly brewed coffee, crispy pastries and plenty of delicious specialities from the region bring this morning to a close. An unusual opportunity to see the Dachstein "awaken" and take a little speed out of your own everyday life, to "decelerate" the stress of everyday life a little!
Would you like to continue hiking?
For all those who would like to hike a little further after their alpine breakfast, we would like to recommend the Heilbronner circular hiking trail. This leads from the Gjaidalm through the impressive karst landscape to the Heilbronner Cross, then on along the well maintained hiking trail to the Dachstein-Hai and then to the mountain station on the Krippenstein. The hike takes about 2 hours and is a great experience for all the senses.

Rustic! Incomparable! Simply Irresistible!
Simply get away from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by nature, cowbells ringing instead of your smartphone…. Holidays up on an Alpine pasture, or in one of the many mountain huts, are becoming increasingly popular. But it is not always easy to find the "right" Alpine pasture or mountain hut. Therefore, we have compiled the most beautiful "Mountain service stations" for you, with stunning panoramic pictures and the most important information for all "newcomers" and World Heritage hikers. As it is usual in the Simonyhütte, the Adamekhütte or Hütteneckalm in Bad Goisern to greet people informally with a “Du” rather that the formal "Sie", as we say here in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut…. "Grias di"!
