Hiking to the Zwieselam
Hiking instead of taking the cable car
At Gasthof Gosausee turn right, direction to "Seeklausalm". Before you reach this hut bend off to the right hand to the trail W 620. On the wending trail up to Zwieselalm you pass "Krautgartenhut". After 1.5 hours you reach the "Zwieselalm" there you have a beautiful few over "Gosaukamm", "King Dachstein" and the lake.
