The glacier – the highlight of Styria

Even the ride up in the panorama cable car of the Dachstein Glacier lift is an experience in itself. The Dachstein seems close enough to touch and the view on the way up is simply stunning.

The highlights up on the Dachstein Glacier:

  • Panorama cable car with an open-air rooftop platform
  • High-alpine experiences such as the Dachstein suspension bridge incl. stairs to nowhere
  • Stairs to nowhere, the Dachstein Sky Walk and the Ice Palace
  • Breathtaking panorama with views over the mountain peaks of Austria
  • to the Czech Republic and Slovenia
  • Climbing and hiking routes to inspire outdoor enthusiasts

Cable car lift reservation system

The Dachstein, being one of the most beautiful excursion destinations in Styria, enjoys great popularity, especially in the summer. Therefore, it is necessary to reserve your cable car ticket early. Simply from home or with your smartphone!

Here you can reserve your seat in the cable car lift

Attractions at and around the top station

The Dachstein Sky Walk is located directly at the Dachstein Glacier lift. The platform at 2,700 metres above sea level offers a panoramic view of the alpine mountain panorama and is one of the most spectacular viewing platforms in the Alps. The Dachstein suspension bridge – the highest suspension bridge in Austria – provides unforgettable memories with a tremendous view over the Alps. The feeling of pure freedom is there for the brave on the "stairway to nowhere", which lets guests "float" over the rocks. In the Dachstein Ice Palace, a mystical world of ice and snow awaits guests deep inside the glacier. The exhibition "Up on the mountains" can currently be admired.

Hiking paradise Dachstein

The Dachstein glacier also offers the perfect backdrop for unique glacier hikes. Whether it's a snowy walk to the “Seethalerhütte” hut, enjoying the spectacular panorama on the adventure trail “kleiner Gjaidstein” or a guided tour across the alpine glacier area, hiking enthusiasts have everything they could possibly desire.

Dachstein alpine region: The car park at the bottom station of the cable car is also an ideal starting point for hikes.  In the alpine region at an altitude of up to 1,900 m, you can hike either on leisurely trails or steeper climbs up to the vertically rising rock faces of the south walls of the Dachstein.

Culinary delights on the mountain

Glacier restaurant on the Dachstein

The glacier restaurant is located directly in the top station of the Dachstein glacier cable car lift. Not only the unique location and the ensuing panorama make it something very special, but also the border between the provinces of Styria and Upper Austria runs right through the middle of the restaurant. 

Culinary highlights are provided by: specialties from the region, varied daily specials, snacks and tasty snack boards for in-between meals. The offer is complemented by a well-balanced salad and cake buffet.
