Gosau in summer - excursion tips, leisure activities, sightseeing and more
Excursions around COOEE alpin Hotel Dachstein - ready for new experiences!
Whenever you feel like spending a day on holiday sightseeing or on other activities, COOEE alpin Hotel Dachstein offers you a great variety. Gosau is located in the heart of the Salzkammergut, a region rich in excursion destinations and leisure opportunities.
Close to Gosau is Hallstatt where you’ll find the oldest salt mine in the world. A day trip takes you to the mining world that shaped lives 7.000 years ago and the place most locally and regionally associated with salt. There are so many new and unexpected activities to discover, especially for children. The Man in Salt or the subterranean salt lake are a source of wide-eyed amazement. You can also take part in guided tours and a World Heritage tour through historic Hallstatt.
A particularly original destination is the shark at Krippenstein - one of the most visited sights in the region, located on the Heilbronn circular hiking trail - a recommended trip for the whole family.
The family adventure park Urzeitwald in Gosau leaves children smiling: giant lizards, flying dinosaurs, mammoths, and other primeval creatures await you as life-size models!
EXCURSIONS AROUND THE DACHSTEIN - SIGHTSEEING AND LEISURE ACTIVITIES FOR THE ADVENTUROUS
The ice cave and the mammoth cave are among the most popular destinations in the region and perfect excursion tips in the event of bad weather. Because who needs sunshine when you’re exploring the underground passages of the Dachstein Caves? The slightly smaller Koppenbrüller Cave can be reached easily by foot from the valley.
Many of our guests also head for the viewing platforms on the Krippenstein. The World Heritage Spiral and 5 Fingers viewing platform, easily reachable by cable car, await. The latter, in the shape of a hand, offers a unique view of the World Heritage region of Hallstatt and the Inner Salzkammergut over a precipice of 500 m - the latest top attraction in the region. 5 fingers can be reached with a beautiful hiking trail in under 30 minutes from the mountain station of Dachstein Krippenstein cable car.
DAY EXCURSIONS - THE BEST WAY TO EXPLORE YOUR HOLIDAY REGION
You can discover a lot on your holidays by venturing a little further afield. Salzburg, the birthplace of Mozart, is always worth a day trip, as are the beautiful lakes of the Salzkammergut, from Attersee to Mondsee to Wolfgangsee - each one more beautiful than the last.
