World Natural Heritage viewing platform

The best views of region

The Welterbespirale viewing platform is certainly exciting – in addition to the fantastic views from the spectacular aluminium ‘ship’, you will also find a photo point and comfortable relaxing recliners here. Ideal for enjoyment and day-dreaming! The Welterbespirale on the 2,100 m peak of the Krippenstein is just a few minutes away from the Krippensteinbahn mountain railway station. It can be accessed via an easy and well established trail – alongside the spectacular 5fingers viewing platform.

At the photo point, you can take a picture of yourself and your fellow walkers at the summit and then purchase this from the photographer when you get back down to the valley. Or you can download it for free from this website. Before starting your descent, you should try a spot of sunbathing on one of our popular wooden recliners. Or why not pay a visit to the World Natural Heritage viewing platform and savour the fantastic views of the glacier and surrounding mountain panorama!

Mountain Adventures in Obertraun

Rustic! Incomparable! Simply Irresistible!

Simply get away from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by nature, cowbells ringing instead of your smartphone…. Holidays up on an Alpine pasture, or in one of the many mountain huts, are becoming increasingly popular. But it is not always easy to find the "right" Alpine pasture or mountain hut. Therefore, we have compiled the most beautiful "Mountain service stations" for you, with stunning panoramic pictures and the most important information for all "newcomers" and World Heritage hikers. As it is usual in the Simonyhütte, the Adamekhütte or Hütteneckalm in Bad Goisern to greet people informally with a “Du” rather that the formal "Sie", as we say here in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut…. "Grias di"!
