The Castle of the Grail, Perceval es Dome and King Arthur es Dome:
Behind these mythical names lies a vast array of fascinating formations of ice and rock where you can marvel at the ice cave. Experienced cave guides will enthrall you with stories from the magical underworld of the Dachstein.
Spectacular ice sculptures, gigantic ice curtains and impressive icicles never fail to enchant. A mystical underground world of ice and rock that will captivate even the youngest visitors.
Please note: Visitors to the cave must be accompanied by experienced guides. Sturdy shoes and warm clothing are recommended. The temperature in the Dachstein Giant Ice Cave rarely exceeds freezing point. However, the excellent facilities make this a great day out for children of all ages.
HALLSTATT – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE:
Hallstatt is located on Lake Hallstatt, about 15 km from Gosau. Hallstatt is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but is also famous for having been recreated by architects in China down to the smallest detail.
On a narrow strip of land between the steep sides of the mountains and the lake, the houses are densely packed, some even built over the water.
This was once a very important town, with its main street parallel to the lakeshore and several narrow streets around the market square.
Hallstatt has a 4000-year history and there is much to see there. Besides the historic town centre with its densely populated houses, there are a salt mine, Celtic burials, a prehistoric museum, the cemetery with its ossuary and the “oldest pipeline in the world”.
How to get there: You can take the train to Hallstatt and cross the lake by ferry from the station to the town centre. Alternatively, you can drive to one of the three large car parks and then take a shuttle bus or walk to the town centre. The town centre is closed to traffic.
DACHSTEIN MAMMOTH CAVE:
Location: only a few minutes from the Schönbergalm near Obertraun.
The huge Mammut Cave never fails to impress with its incredible size and a range of colours that you would never expect to find under the Salzkammergut! The word “Mammut”, meaning “mammoth”, was chosen by its discoverers because of the enormous size of the underground rooms and passages of this cave network. So far, about 70 kilometres of passages have been explored, of which about one kilometre can be seen during the tour.
The tours last about an hour and give visitors an idea of how the caves formed and how they were explored. They learn how huge amounts of water once flowed through the mountain and what problems the explorers of the Midnight Dome had on their multi-day expedition into the cave.
In the realm of shadows there are no limits to the imagination. Here, nature has painted its own pictures in white alpine milk and brown iron oxide and created names like the Venus of the Cave and the Lady with the Tyre Skirt. Finally, installations such as the light incidence project and the cave scan by the Linz University of Art are impressive.
Please note: Wearing sturdy shoes and warm clothing is again recommended when visiting this cave (guided tour required), as the temperature remains at around 4 degrees Celsius. Suitable for children.
KRIPPENSTEIN NEAR HALLSTATT – THE DACHSTEIN SHARK AND THE FIVE FINGERS The Dachstein Shark is a spectacular attraction on the Heilbronn Trail on the summit of the Krippenstein in Hallstatt and offers visitors an insight into the prehistoric past of the Dachstein massif.
Marvel at the impressive prehistoric hunters on their ancient hunting grounds. From the mouth of the Dachstein shark you can see the fossilised prehistoric seabed, which is a popular spot for a photo opportunity with the Dachstein glacier in the background.
From the mountain station to the Krippenstein cable car, walk for about 30 minutes along the well-kept Heilbronner Rundweg trail towards the Heilbronner Kreuz cross to the Dachstein Shark, which you can walk inside, built by the Bad Goisern company Deubler. Visitors can climb a ladder to enjoy the view of the ancient seabed and the Dachstein from the mouth of the shark.
The Five Fingers are not for the faint-hearted! Arguably the most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps, this is located near the Dachstein Shark and towers over a 400-metre precipice.
HALLSTATT SALT MINE: Take the panoramic cable car up the mountain. The route takes you via the mouth hole into a unique underground world:
Kilometre-long tunnels, carved out by hand over 3,000 years ago, lead deep into the mountain.
In cooperation with the Vienna Museum of Natural History and the staff of Salinen Austria AG, a new Bronze Age cinema was built 400 metres underground in Hallstatt and a story about a fictitious early bronze inhabitant of Hallstatt, called Udlo, was created using the latest scientific knowledge.
Thousands of years of history are brought together with the latest technology to present the latest research in an impressive exhibition.
The temperature in the salt mine is a constant 8 degrees all year round. Warm clothing and sturdy shoes are recommended.
Helicopter tours Enjoy a special experience with the whole family. Helicopter tours are available all year round.
