Snowshoeing on the Zwieselalm

Look forward to pure winter romance!

When the glistening white landscape of snow cracks under your boots, when the Gosaubach stream steams in the chilly air, when the sun ignites friendly light – this is how winter in the Salzkammergut makes you really happy. Enjoy the lonely silence of the deep snow covered Zwieselalm, experience the beauty of nature in the Dachstein West ski region with deep blue winter skies and hike through areas that would not otherwise be accessible in winter. A winter wonderland with unforgettable images in the World Heritage region Hallstatt / Dachstein Salzkammergut.
