Not far from Salzburg, you’ll find the impressive Dachstein Mountains. These peaks are a section of the Northern Limestone Alps and make a great setting for a whole host of outdoor activities, Mountain Climbing naturally being one of them.
This massif offers some awesome technical mountaineering opportunities and some less technical options too. Steinerweg is an awesome climb that combines via ferrata, rock climbing, ice climbing and more. The views are epic on this climb. The Cassin (Westliche Zinne / Western pinnacle) climb is a rock climbing heavy ascent and also a great option.
Austria has very cold winters and warm and sunny summers. The temperatures are drastically lower in the mountains.
Fly to Salzburg then drive or take a transfer to the mountains.
May through September
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
