Climbing & via ferratas in the Salzkammergut

A climbing paradise for beginners and the experienced

Rugged rock faces, ridges and turrets - the magical fascination can be felt immediately. Whether you are a newcomer, an experienced mountaineer or a passionate climber – you will find in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut a paradise at the edge of the sky, surrounded by breathtaking mountain views and at the foot of Mount Dachstein. The mountains rise up to almost 3.000 meters, rugged with deep gorges, with high Alpine pastures embedded in the mountains and rocky summits surmounting everything. Breathtakingly beautiful. Everything you could hope for. “The Echerntal-Klettersteig” in Hallstatt and the ”Gosaussee-Klettersteig” in Gosau offer tempting routes with various grades of difficulty for beginners and experts alike. Hold by hold you will experience the fascination of this fantastic sport in the Gosauvalley. The unique terrain, right next to Mount Dachstein, offers distinctly Alpine, though well secured routes.
