On the skids, get set, go!
Ice skating has a history of several thousand years - so has the World Heritage town of Hallstatt.

Ice skating in the World Cultural Heritage

Ice skating is very popular as a winter sport in the Holiday Region Dachstein Salzkammergut, so it is no wonder that numerous guests and locals meet every year on the ice rink at Gasthof Hirlatz in the Echern Valley for happy ice skating. Under best conditions, you can do your rounds on the perfectly prepared ice.


Sporty winter time

In winter there are also plenty other things to do in the Holiday Region Dachstein Salzkammergut.

As a nature lover, you can experience the quietest side of the snowy winter landscape around Lake Hallstatt. Great winter hiking trails in the valley or on the mountain invite you to relax and enjoy.

If you prefer action-packed skiing, the slopes of the ski area Dachstein West and Freesports Arena Dachstein Krippenstein are waiting for you.

Only in operation when the temperatures are cold enough.
