News from the Mountain
More time for all mountain enthusiasts

Also this summer all "summiteers" have more time for an unforgettable mountain experience. Because from 2nd July to 5th November 2022, the cable cars on the Dachstein Krippenstein run 2 hours longer - so all mountain enthusiasts have 2 hours more time on the mountain to visit the numerous attractions or just to enjoy the unique glacier view. At 19:00 there is the last descent from 2,100 meters back into the valley. The summer season has been extended this year until 6th November 2022. The current travel times and prices can also be found below under "Information at a Glance". We wish you an incomparable experience of nature on the Krippenstein in Obertraun on Lake Hallstatt.
