Active vacation in the Salzkammergut – of course in Gosau!

Winter holiday at the foot of the Dachstein

Winter holidays in Austria are usually activity filled. Here in Gosau and the surrounding area there are countless opportunities to experience the snow-covered winter landscape in action.

Many of our guests continue to praise the cross-country skiing paradise of Gosau long after their visit – and often come back to us at COOEE alpin Hotel Dachstein for this reason. It’s just a hundred metres from the hotel to the entry of the cross-country ski run – can it get any better? Cross-country skiing is a uniquely natural sport and one of the healthiest ways to promote blood circulation. Gosau offers a number of cross-country routes – 50 km classic and 15 km skating – as well as an inviting practice trail for beginners. The trails are groomed daily and are free of charge.

Skating is cross-country skiing in its most original form and is experiencing a real revival. In Gosau you’ll find the charming 4 km Spreißler Skating Loipe stretching through the enchanting Gosau valley.
