Rossalm in Gosau

Meeting point for hungry hikers and bikers

High peaks, strange rock formations, idyllic alpine pastures with flowering meadows with cattle, ponies, donkeys, rabbits, chickens and sheep turn a day on the Rossalm in Gosau, at an altitude of 1,387m above sea level, into an unforgettable experience during a hiking holiday in the Dachstein Salzkammergut holiday destination.

It is the little things and the endless hospitality of the hosts, which make the stress and the hustle and bustle disappear as if by magic. And there are the many handmade delicacies, such as an unforgettable “Kaiserschmarrn” (shredded pancake) or delicious “Guglhupf” (Bundt cake), oven fresh farmers’ bread, and homemade pine schnapps, which make the Rossalm so popular with hikers and cyclists on your tour over the Dachstein loop. Whether you are coming to the Rossalm in Gosau via Gosau or Hallstatt, we wish you relaxed hours and incomparable mountain experiences in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut.
