Many marked hiking paths lead you through a unique area with majestic mountains, blooming Alpine meadows, fragrant forests, torrential streams and clear mountain lakes. With a little bit of luck, you will see some chamois and ibex making their daredevil leaps across the steep rock faces or whistling marmots at the side of the trail. You can get to the starting points easily and get back home from many places without a car.
Gosau | Zwieselalm:: Here where skiers come to put their carving skills to the test in Winter, the gently rolling green meadows and mountain ridges offer fantastic views – the perfect place to enjoy a walk.
Gosau | Schleifsteinrüche:: Die Schleifsteinbrüche am Ressenberg sind ein bedeutendes Kulturgut für Gosau. Mindestens 500 Jahre lang wurden hier Schleifsteine abgebaut, die in der gesamten österreichisch-ungarischen Monarchie Absatz fanden.
Starting at the Gosauschmied, this circular walk is also possible in bad weather in proper walking boots. Follow the road up to the lower Gosau lake for about 1km and then bear left along a gravel track.
