Children’s’ playground in Gosau

It's all happening here

You’ve all been there: it is a beautiful afternoon, the sun is smiling from the sky, the birds are singing and the magnificent nature of the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut entices you with a varied play of colours. Now get out there and experience something.

No time for boredom

Combine a short leisurely walk along the “Bachweg” in Gosau, or a tour of the church quarter with an intermediate stop at the children’s’ playground of Gosau. There is plenty of fun for the little ones: a cool "cable car", swinging swings, a great sandpit for creative young artists, a fast-paced slide and lots of other games. And while the children run off their energy on the large playground, the parents have the opportunity to recharge their batteries in a shaded spot. But also there is also something for the larger kids: on the adjacent beach volleyball court there are a lot of possibilities to "hit off". So don’t forget the ball!

Our tip: If you are coming from outside of the Gosau Valley, we recommend you combine the Gosau playground with a visit to Lake Gosau or a mountainous adventure day on the hiking-friendly Zwieselalm.
