The Dachstein-Glacier in winter

The Dachstein is one of the most visited Styrian excursion destination. And no wonder - it is the first glacier in the Alps when approaching from the East. Even the ascent to the Dachstein Glacier with the new panoramic gondola is an experience: you climb 1,000 metres and brush past sheer rock walls. Arriving at 2,700 metres above sea level, you look out over a fantastic panorama of hundreds of mountain peaks.
