Family hiking in autumn vacation

An ideal autumn hike for young and old is the family-friendly Zwieselalm in the Dachstein Hiking World in Gosau. After a relaxing ride on the “Gosaukammbahn”, well marked hiking trails lead through the sunny high altitude and alpine flora to the huts, which remain open until mid-October. The charm of the area is, among other things, the view into the deep autumn Gosau valley. With the imposing crags of the majestic Gosaukamm, sheer rock walls and striking peaks tower loom all around the huts. Below we have summarized more family-friendly hiking trails in the Salzkammergut for you.
