Dachstein West Tip:

From the mountain station of the eight-person Panorama Jet lift, we recommend hiking just a few more metres up to the 'Gosaunet-Platzl' (viewpoint) - a small hill next to the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift 'Aussichtsberg'. There you have a fantastic panoramic view of the 'Hohe Tauern´range with the highest mountain in Austria, the 'Großglockner'(3798 m), the 'Hochkönig', the 'Tennengebirge', the 'Höllengebirge', the 'Tote Gebirge', and the Dachstein massive, including Dachstein glacier and the 'Gosaukamm'.
