A boat trip on Wolfgangsee lake
There were even boat trips on Wolfgangsee lake in the Emperor's day and age. The picture-perfect nostalgic ship, the "Kaiser Franz Josef I." paddle steamer still shuttles between the towns of St. Wolfgang, Strobl and St. Gilgen and is one of the fleet's attractions. It had a massive facelift in 2008. It was adapted to look like it did in 1908. Enjoy the nostalgic trip over the glittering blue Wolfgangsee lake.
Austria's steepest steam cogwheel railway has been leading from St. Wolfgang up the Schafberg mountain (1,783 m) since 1893. In 45 minutes it overcomes 1,190 metres difference in altitude and provides a breathtaking 360° panorama over seven of the Salzkammergut lakes and the majestic Alps.
Dachstein ice cave
The Dachstein ice cave opens up a natural wonderland deep inside the mountain of the Dachstein range. Glaciers, icebergs and fantastic ice formations have formed in this hidden away landscape over thousands of years. Experienced guides lead you down through a stalactite cave into the "König Artus Dom", over a 25 m thick ice floor to the "Great Ice Chapel". Additional highlights on the way are the breathtaking light effects and unique art installations.
The 5-Fingers viewing platform
The Dachstein offers everything the heart desires and promises the very finest experiences of nature. Discover the fairytale world of ice caves, hike through the Mammoth Cave in the footsteps of cave explorers. Feel the adrenaline rushing through your veins on the 5fingers viewing platform and relax with a leisurely hike to the Heilbronn Cross. The Dachstein will captivate you with its magic.
Aussee salt worlds
The mountain of treasures. An exciting adventure for the whole family! Austria's largest salt works captivates visitors with the presence of the salt alone. Only here do the tunnels lead through pure rock salt. Visitors go deep underground into this magical world via two long miners' slides.
