Hike on the trail "Herrenweg" to the Gosaukamm
The 10 kilometer long Herrenweg in Gosau at Dachstein leads up to the Zwieselalm at around 1 500 m above sea level. The hike is, despite the alpine situation, a simple hike, suitable also for families. On forest roads, hiking trails and wood trails, the path winds through the forest landscape above the idyllic Gosau valley.
Hiking up to the Zwieselalm in GosauBehind the chapel on Calvary starts the Herrenweg. Through the forest it goes on the trail 611 in direction Zwieselalm to about 1 500 m. Again and again, there are great views of the beautiful Gosau valley and cozy rest areas. On the way, the cable cars "Hornspitzlift" and Gosaukammbahn cross each other. A nice tour from the valley to the Zwieselalm.
The long-distance hiking trail Salzalpensteig also runs along the Herrenweg.
