King Dachstein shows us the way
Pure nature. As far as the eye can see. Hiking on the approximately 2000 meter high Dachstein plateau. Fancy unforgettable mountain moments? With the popular hiking guide Barbara Bichler we start with a comfortable ride with the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car to the idyllic Gjaidalm. From here, our way leads us past cows, sheep and lots of colourful alpine flowers in about an hour to the Wiesberghaus. The legendary Dachstein summit always in sight.
After a leisurely rest at the “Naturfreunde” (Nature lovers) hut at about 1300 meters above sea level, we begin the stony descent - preferably with hiking poles - down over the Echerntal to Hallstatt. Through the Herrengasse and past the “Tiergartenhütte” we pass a relict of the last ice age - the glacier garden - to conclude our high alpine day hike.
