A world of limitless experiences

There’s much to discover and experience in Obertraun on the southern shore of the idyllic Lake Hallstatt: hiking routes for all types, romantic spots, sport challenges, and winter wonderlands.

From beginners to professionals, the Krippenstein has something for everyone. In both summer and winter, cosy mountain huts, such as the Lodge on the Krippenstein or the Schilcherhaus on the Gjaidalm, provide a relaxing finale to exciting hiking and thrilling skiing days.
