Summer adventure and activity holiday in Gosau

Your holiday in the Salzkammergut

The Salzkammergut is one of the loveliest holiday regions in Austria. In summer in particular nature reveals itself at its most variety-packed. And the best thing about it – your holiday home from home in Vitalhotel Gosau is right in the thick of it all, at the foot of the Dachstein mountain. From here you can head out into the natural landscape, which couldn't be any more diverse. The range of activities available between the impressive mountains and lush valleys are just as varied. For families and solo travellers alike. Nothing stands in the way of you enjoying an unforgettable summer holiday!

Relax in a natural gem - Löckernmoos

Well hidden in the woodlands of Gosau is the tranquil and idyllic natural gem of Löckernmoos.

You can walk around Löckernsee from Gosau in about two hours. Those of you who are out and about with children can enjoy a leisurely journey on the excursion train to the nearby 'Schleifsteinbrüchen' quarries. From there it is just a 30 minute walk to the natural paradise at Löckernsee. In the 10,000 year old moor you get to enjoy relaxing tranquillity in the natural surroundings, something you seldom find elsewhere. It is not without good reason that Löckernsee was chosen as the loveliest place in Upper Austria.

A family adventure in the primeval forest

Meet the pterosaurs, mammoths and giant insects. The primeval forest adventure park lives up to its name. In the family park children and adults alike can find out the story of how mankind came into existence at 25 exciting stations. Touching the objects and having fun are definitely the order of the day here and is what makes learning exciting while you are on holiday – an experience you will remember for a long time to come.

Experience a journey into the past in the 'Schmiedbauern' museum too, which provides an exciting insight into life on the farm in the old days.
