Stopover up on the mountain pasture

The Sonnenalm, in Gosau, is a homely hideaway and offers the perfect rest stop on your hike through the impressive mountains of the hiking region Zwieselalm & Dachstein West - high above the Gosau Valley.

Whether it be summer or winter the Sonnenalm, located at 1580m above seas level, is the ideal place with its large sun terrace – in fact even the seasons in-between have their own appeal. From here you have a stunning view of the mighty Dachstein glacier. On clear days you can even see the Grossglockner. Whether as a break on a walking tour of the Zwieselalm, as a family trip to the pasture, skiing or snowshoeing - the magnificent sun terrace, the relaxing winter garden and the cosy restaurant invite you all year round to homemade pastries and hearty home cooking.
