‘Klackl or Seeklausalm’ on Lake Gosau

Brettljause between mountains & lake

After hiking with your family around the picturesque Lake Gosau in the afternoon, or conquering the climbing route with friends or a leisurely paddle over the idyllic mountain lake with your partner, when the dairyman greets you with a cheerful "Griaß di" and you are served with a hearty Brettljause (Austrian ploughman’s lunch)... this is the experience of summer on the Klackl or Seeklausalm Alpine pasture in UNESCO World Heritage region of Dachstein Salzkammergut. A hearty meal with homemade natural products from the region, along with a fresh shandy, the breath-taking panoramic view of the mighty Dachstein Glacier and the romantic ringing of cowbells – this is how diverse and stunning a holiday on Lake Gosau can be!

Our tip: The Klackl or Seeklausalm in Gosau is particularly good "for guests who are not able walkers": The idyllic mountain pasture, above Lake Gosau, is a 10 or 15 minute walk from the large car park or bus stop respectively!

The Gosau Lake Experience

Rustic! Incomparable! Simply Irresistible!

Simply get away from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by nature, cowbells ringing instead of your smartphone…. Holidays up on an Alpine pasture, or in one of the many mountain huts, are becoming increasingly popular. But it is not always easy to find the "right" Alpine pasture or mountain hut. Therefore, we have compiled the most beautiful "Mountain service stations" for you, with stunning panoramic pictures and the most important information for all "newcomers" and World Heritage hikers. As it is usual in the Simonyhütte, the Adamekhütte or Hütteneckalm in Bad Goisern to greet people informally with a “Du” rather that the formal "Sie", as we say here in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut…. "Grias di"!
