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!
