Dachstein Mountain near Falkensteiner Hotel Schladming

Dachstein Glacier

Breathtaking views and thrills

2,700 metres –  that's how high our Styrian glacier, the Dachstein, rises above sea level. It is as clear as glacier water that there is a lot to experience at such an altitude!

The varied landscape offers ample room for extraordinary flora and fauna. Listen to the whistles of the marmots, discover a golden eagle scanning for prey, let yourself be inspired by the brilliant blue of the gentian, and enjoy the fresh mountain air in your lungs.

Did you know that the Hallstatt – Dachstein – Salzkammergut region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site?

As one of only 20 such areas worldwide, the region has made it into the UNESCO World Heritage List. Its unique beauty and scientific importance were the decisive factors for this.

A day on the glacier is anything but dull: take the spectacular ascent with the panorama gondola (which is free with the Summer Card), enjoy the view from the unique Sky Walk, and marvel at the extraordinary exhibitions in the Ice Palace. Thrills are also guaranteed: the suspension bridge and the stairway will make an impression even on those who have a lot of experience with heights!

Our tip:

You should reserve your gondola seat in advance, especially in summer! This way, nothing stands in the way of a relaxed ascent.
