Rustic mountain rest stop on the Rossalm

Meeting point for hungry hikers and bikers

High peaks, strange rock formations, idyllic alpine pastures with flowering meadows with cattle, ponies, donkeys, rabbits, chickens and sheep turn a day on the Rossalm in Gosau, at an altitude of 1,387m above sea level, into an unforgettable experience during a hiking holiday in the Dachstein Salzkammergut holiday destination.

It is the little things and the endless hospitality of the hosts, which make the stress and the hustle and bustle disappear as if by magic. And there are the many handmade delicacies, such as an unforgettable “Kaiserschmarrn” (shredded pancake) or delicious “Guglhupf” (Bundt cake), oven fresh farmers’ bread, and homemade pine schnapps, which make the Rossalm so popular with hikers and cyclists on your tour over the Dachstein loop. Whether you are coming to the Rossalm in Gosau via Gosau or Hallstatt, we wish you relaxed hours and incomparable mountain experiences in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut.

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"!
