Glacier World Dachstein

Not all glaciers are the same.
The Dachstein attracts visitors in winter, but also in summer with an interesting stay on the mountain.

The Dachstein Glacier World is one of the top 3 excursion destinations in Austria and we are lucky to have this breathtaking glacier right under our noses. The highest mountain in Styria, over 2700m, attracts its visitors among other things with a far-reaching view not only over the Enns Valley, but even as far as Slovenia and the Czech Republic. In addition, visitors to the Dachstein Glacier can expect attractions such as the suspension bridge, the staircase to nowhere, the Sky Walk and the Ice Palace. Collect unforgettable moments together with the whole family and feel the thrill.

Together with our hiking guides you can experience a guided hike to the Dachstein Glacier
Here is a little insight into our guided glacier hike:

The Panorama Gondola takes you up to the Dachstein Glacier in about 10 minutes.
At the top, a white blanket of snow covers the summit.
Guests who are free from giddiness can venture up the "stairway to nowhere", which is located above the Dachstein massif.
The glacier itself is an experience, with an ice palace inside. Want to make yourself comfortable in the ice living room?

Dachstein Sky Walk - the balcony of the Alps

The Dachstein Sky Walk provides thrills. You'll find this viewing platform at the top station of the Dachstein cable car, on the 250-metre drop of the Hunerkogel rock face. By the way, another breathtaking attraction has been added to the Sky Walk floor: a glass plate now provides a direct view into the depths. But don't worry, only your imagination is trying to play tricks on you, the plate is shockproof, bulletproof and sure-footed!

Ice Palace - In the realm of frozen worlds

At an altitude of 2,700 m, you will enter the interior of the Dachstein Glacier and encounter ice sculptures, ice rooms, light and sound effects. You will be surprised how enchanting ice can be!


The gondola ride is included with the Schladming-Dachstein Sommercard!

A selection of places of interest in the vicinity

Not all glaciers are the same.
The Dachstein attracts visitors in winter, but also in summer with an interesting stay on the mountain.

We identify in many ways with our local mountain, the Hauser Kaibling - lots of nature experiences and excellent natural cuisine await its guests from home and abroad.

The adventure mountain for young and old, in Ramsau in the middle of Schladming Dachstein.

Many know you, but probably more from skiing. But it doesn't have to stay that way, because the Reiteralm also offers its guests hikes, via ferratas and mountain lakes in summer. So a visit is definitely not to be missed.

Fantastic hikes, the largest zipline in the Alps and rustic alpine huts - the Stoderzinken delights its guests in summer and winter.

The sun cannot always shine from the sky and because hiking on a rainy day is no fun, there are highlights to discover in the Schladming-Dachstein Region even on cloudy days.
