Dachstein Rundwanderweg

Manageable daily stages, no need for ropes or climbing gear, trail time between 4 and 7 hours, through an imposing alpine massif famous for its breadth of landscapes.


Rugged, rocky landscapes, green alpine pastures, bizarre, jagged crags, towers and mighty cliff faces, glacial ice, limestone peaks, isolated high plateaus, virgin forests and scenic mountaintops, mysterious karst springs and reflecting tarns – these images characterize our eight-day hike on and around the Dachstein. The fascination of the Dachstein becomes tangible. We tackle our circumnavigation of the Dachstein in a counter-clockwise direction, since the natural landmarks and the elevation changes blend more harmoniously into the route. Beginning in the north-west on the shore of the Gosausee, we continue at the foot of the Gosaukamm and along the south face of the Dachstein to Ramsau. From there we hike one tier higher, east across the glacier to the Guttenberghaus and continuing on to the Stoderzinken. Now through the Notgasse and Viehbergalm, we make our way north across a secluded high plateau in the footsteps of pilgrims and come to the Salzkammergut region. On flat paths, always following the course of the Traun, we hike through the Salzkammergut, past Bad Aussee, Obertraun, Hallstatt and Bad Goisern. And finally, we cross the Kalmgebirge mountains, home to the Goiserer Hütte, on our path to Gosau.
