Autumn – timeless
The sky above the 2000 meter high Krippenstein is deep blue. The Alpine choughs whistle above your heads. The air is crystal clear and the views wander across the plateau into the infinite distance. Get closer to heaven and get away from the stress of everyday life in the valley.
Now is actually the best time to go up to the summit of the 2000 meter high Krippenstein in Obertraun and feel closer to God. Just in time for the Austrian National Holiday on 26th October, guests from all over the world will celebrate an unforgettable mountain worship in the Heilbronn Chapel in front of the unique natural scenery of "King Dachstein".
There is a lot to see
And if you still feel like hiking after the service, then immerse yourself in the breath-taking mountains at the foot of the Dachstein. But many attractions such as the unique Dachstein Shark or the spectacular viewing platform 5Fingers are waiting for you. If you prefer culinary, we recommend a stop at the “Bergrestaurant“ or in the rustic “Lodge am Krippenstein”. Unique pleasure at the highest level!
What are the Obertraun Mountain Moments?
As the colours in the woodland begin to change and temperatures become more comfortable the time is on to go out for a hike! The Obertraun “Hiking in Autumn Program” includes hiking tours ranging from 500 m to 2100 m above sea level. Tours range from easy, in terms of difficulty, to very challenging. The Dachstein-Krippenstein cable car is a means of conquering 1600 m quickly and effortlessly! Discover more of your beautiful ,natural surroundings and go out and explore the Dachstein- Salzkammergut, either under your own steam, or by joining one of our all-time-popular escorted hiking tours in conjunction with the “Obertraun Mountain Moments”.
Dachstein Krippenstein starts the summer season on 29th May 2020 - The cave worlds on the Dachstein Krippenstein will open their gates again just in time for the extended Whitsun weekend. The Dachstein Krippenstein cable car also starts operating again on this day.
This also means that excursion destinations, such as the 5Fingers or the World Heritage Spiral are again easy and convenient to reach. So too the numerous mountain huts and the mountain restaurants will also start their delayed summer season.
Due to the current situation, there may be alterations to the following "Information at a Glance" section. This can affect the cable car travel times but also the opening times of the cave worlds. We would therefore kindly ask you to inform yourself about current running, opening times or tour times before you visit the Dachstein Krippenstein.
Thank you for your understanding.
