Graukogel - The wonder of stone pines – good for the heart
"Stone Pine Magic" (Zirbenzauber) on the Graukogel. The stand of pines situated next to the top station on the leisure hiking mountain in Bad Gastein amid idyllic scenery with incredible views, are two to three hundred years and somewhat unique.
"We want to give our guests a totally new experience with stone pines to touch, smell, taste and drink" says Schafflinger, Chief Executive Officer of Gasteiner Bergbahnen AG. For this purpose, an initial step involved creating the Stone Pine Trail (Zirbenweg) – a circular trail starting and ending at the Graukogel Lift top station.
