Here you have 2 possibilities to discover the high plateau
Variant 1 (easy) Heilbronnerkreuz
approx.: 7,3 km, 2,5 - 3 hours., altitude difference á/â400 m
From the top station of the Krippenstein cable car you hike the signposted path to the H Heilbronnerkreuz memorial. You are accompanied by the spectacular view on the Dachstein high plateau. At the end of the tour you can either ride up with the third section of the cable car to get back to the starting point or take an extra walk along the skiing slope.

Variant 2 (medium) Wiesberghaus
approx.: 10,9 km, 4 hours., altitude difference á/â700 m
After 3 cable car rides you start your tour towards the Gjaidalm, which would be a perfect place for a snack. You walk on to the karst plateau.

Finally the path leads you back to the cable car station before you can review the day at the valley.

Day 3: Goisererhütte und Kalmberg
approx.: 12 km, 5 hours, altitude difference á/â1066 m
With the public bus, you first head to the valley of Gosau. At the district Ramsau the signposted path first leads you through a forrest area and later over an alpine pasture with numerous huts (unfortunately not operated). At the Goiserer hut you find a fabulous panoramic view over the valley of Goisern. Depending on your stamina you can hike on, passing the Kalmooskirche cave and onto the Kalmberg mountain before you head back to Gosau and take the bus to Bad Goisern. (If you skip the Kalmberg the total length of the tour shortens about 2,5km and about 200 m in altitude difference)

Day 4: Relax day at the Narzissenbad Bad Aussee
You start your day with a transfer to Bad Aussee. While you enter the Narzissenbad Aussee SPA we bring your luggage to the hotel. At the Narzissenbad you regenerate your muscles in natural brine from the salt mines of Altaussee, the biggest salt deposit in Austria.

Day 5: Loseralm
approx.: 13,6 km, 4,5 - 5 hours., altitude difference á/â763 m
Today you start with a bus ride to Altaussee at the bottom of mount Loser. This panorama already impressed the James Bond actor Daniel Craig.
