Hiking and other sports in the Goisern Valley
Ringed by mighty mountains and located at a crystal-clear lake, Bad Goisern is the home town of the renowned Austrian musician Hubert von Goisern. The picturesque Dachstein area lends itself to nature exploration, walking and hiking. Marvel at picture-postcard forests and charming mountain lodges and restaurants, some of which offer overnight facilities. Having spent the day out walking and hiking, there is nothing to beat a refreshing swim in Lake Hallstatt. Bicycles are available for hire at the local Mountain Bike Center, and there are cycling and mountain bike routes for people of all ages and ambitions. Climbing and rafting make for an even more thrilling outdoor experience in Bad Goisern.
