Gosau in the inner Salzkammergut
Gosau lies at the southernmost point of Upper Austria in the Inner Salzkammergut. The Gosaukamm mountain range rises up at the end of the valley. Created millions of years ago as a coral reef, today it is a popular area for hiking and climbing enthusiasts. But not only the Gosaukamm offers a multitude of hiking routes. The surrounding peaks and alpine pastures are also fantastic. A true jewel of nature is the lake Löckernsee raised bog, a small bog lake surrounded by pine trees and numerous alpine grasses.
The Dachstein and lake Gosausee
Lake Gosausee, also called “the eye of God”, with the majestic Dachstein behind it, is one of the most popular photo subjects in the region. Gazing at the reflection of the Dachstein glacier in the crystal-clear glacier water of Lake Gosausee is an unforgettable experience.
Summer and Winter
What is a hiking paradise in summer is one of the largest ski areas in Upper Austria in winter - Dachstein West. With 142 kilometres of prepared pistes, there is something for everyone. But Gosau is not just about fun on the slopes - other winter sports activities such as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, curling, snowshoeing, ski tours or leisurely winter hiking are also very popular.
All this and much more belongs to an unforgettable holiday as you can experience it in Gosau.
