The Dachstein

Sightseeing, snowboarding, alpine and nordic skiing, mountaineering, hiking, rock climbing, paragliding, enjoying the scenery - you can do all of this on the Dachstein.

The Dachstein is one of the most visited excursion destinations in Styria. No wonder - approaching from the east, it is the first glacier in the Alps you come to. 

Even the ride up on the Dachstein Glacier Lift is a memorable experience in its own right: You will rise around 1,000 vertical meters and float close to precipitous cliff sides.

Once at 2,700 metres above sea level, you will be able to look out across a fantastic panorama with hundreds of mountain peaks.

Whether you are an athlete or more laid-back, the Dachstein has something to offer for everyone - and you can find complete information online at www.derdachstein.at
