Via Ferrata Gjaidstein

Open
This is a very beautiful, not too difficult summit path, well protected by steel cables.

The top of Gjaidsteinis one of the best viewpoints accessible from the Dachstein Gondola. Walk along the ridge’s well-secured rocky passages, enjoying great panoramic views of the Dachstein, Koppenkarstein, the lake area to the north of the Dachstein massif and, the Am Stein high plateau.
