Scenically beautiful guided high alpine mountain hike on the balcony of the Dachstein plateau during the Obertraun Mountain Moments.

Hike to the Däumelkogel

From the mountain station at the Krippenstein we descend steeply in the karst terrain to the Lake Däumel, the only "real" lake on the karst plateau. We then cross the heavily karstified area and head directly towards the Däumelkogel, which guards the northern edge of the plateau like a gatekeeper. We follow the climbing tracks up to a rock belt, which we overcome in a short climb until we reach the inviting summit with cross and beautiful view a few minutes later. Back on the plateau, the path leads us through the karst landscape with its many shapes, where we encounter caves, dolinas, karst alleys and primeval pastures. Numerous protected alpine plants delight our eyes. With a little luck chamois cross our way.

At the Heilbronner Cross we enjoy the view of the surrounding peaks and our snack. The place reminds us of the tragic accident in 1954, when a group of students with their three teachers got lost and froze to death in a snowstorm on the Dachstein plateau. A leisurely walk back to the starting point.
