Winter vacation close to the Dachstein Glacier

Family time in Gosau, Salzkammergut

Skiing holidays are one of the top winter experiences in Austria. The imposing mountains, picturesque villages, and legendary hospitality are a unique combination which attracts visitors from all over the world. Beautiful Gosau, near the Dachstein Glacier, is no exception. Here you can enjoy all the essential ingredients of the finest winter holidays.

Gosau is located in the middle of the Dachstein-Salzkammergut ski region, just a stone's throw from attractive ski areas, including Dachstein West - directly connected to Gosau - and the Freeride Arena on the Krippenstein near Obertraun. Dachstein West is the largest ski area in Upper Austria and includes the Hornspitz with Brumsiland and Zwieselalm.


142 km of wonderfully groomed slopes invite you to take turns of all kinds in powder snow under blue winter skies - just how you imagine a skiing holiday in Austria! You can also expect rustic mountain huts with culinary specialities and views of the breathtaking mountain panorama of the Dachstein Glacier as well as après-ski partying at its best in the valley of Gosau.


COOEE alpin Hotel Dachstein is the ideal starting point for exciting adventures on the slopes. Those who stay with us also have numerous other options, especially for winter holidays with children.
A great attraction for children is the Trocktann sledge run in Bad Goisern - right next to the 1992 World Championships track. The 22-minute ride - also available under floodlights - is an amazing experience, whether by toboggan, bobsleigh - or, like TV presenter Stefan Raab, in a wok! After a 40-minute ascent of 300 metres you’ll reach the toboggan huts, open daily in the winter season.
