From Hinterstoder a cable car whisks you up to a plateau at 1,400 m above sea level where a beautiful hiking area awaits you. A chairlift takes you further up to the top station from where you enjoy awe-inspiring views of the surrounding mountains. A leisurely loop hiking trail leads to Schneeofen or Schafkogel at 2,000 m above sea level. On the way back you will be able to enjoy the wondergul view from the Dachsteinblick platform and from lake Schafkogelsee. Enthusiastic hikers can climb Schrocken (2,281m), Warscheneck (2,388m) or Hochmölbing (2,336m).
Wurzeralm Mountain Lifts
Take the world's fastest funicular up the mountain ....
A bit outside Spital just before the Phyrn pass, Pyhrn Wurzeralmbahn, the world's fastest funicular takes you up to the geologically very interesting Wurzeralm alp at 1,400m above sea level. With its idyllic mountain lake and the high moor surrounded by the majestic peaks of Warscheneck, Wurzeralm is a popular outing destination.
A one-person chair lift takes you up from Windischgarsten to Wurbauerkogel (850 m), with its panoramic tower and a very interesting exposition. Also enjoy the comfortable restaurant and terrace with a great view.
This experience is topped only by the summer sledge ride (for adults and children), which takes you down to the valley on a 2 km track full of tricky turns.
Another attraction is the Alpine Coaster - a family-friendly spectacle full of turns and jumps on a 1.1 km run.
Available in all weather conditions.
