Skywalk Dachstein

Reviewed By Dannyboy1977 - Brussels

Definitely an intense experience, especially if you have fear of height. Otherwise you have the same view from the bridge as from anywhere else, except that since it is a cable bridge, you may feel that you walk in the air - well, I didn't... Probably my experience is also shadowed by the fact that the place was full of tourists. Of course, I couldn't blame them, being a tourist myself, too. If you want to get rid of the crowd, you should jump into your hiking boots and there are some peaks to climb, very near the Gondola station.

I am scared of the heights but, believe me this one is must do on your list. Best to do it on a sunny day so you can see everything, and it is beautiful. Minimalistic and according to nature. Do it!!!

Silberkarklamm

Reviewed By Qamer_Zia - Frankfurt, Germany

There is quite a bit of steep that you will have to climb. A good exercise it is. Its just amazing to follow the water stream upwards and to chase its origin. Just climb carefully and take good care of small children.

I have visited twice before this visit and each time my heart beats faster when walking out on the platform. Stand on the glass floor and look straight down or just feel the wind and clouds go past you. Lots of great picture opportunities, and the birds love to hover around you.

Reviewed By Chelsea B - Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

It was so fun! The idea is that you control your own kart with your own brake, it felt like you were going soooo fast sometimes. Once again wonderful views but be wary of people braking on their cart in order to take a picture, you could cause a pile up! The coaster cost 6.50 euro for one ride.

Dachstein Sudwand

Reviewed By Kevin F - Nottingham, United Kingdom

I assume this is referring to the Dachsteinsudwandhutte immediately below the mountain's south face. Basically it's one of a number of (in my opinion excellent) mountain huts in the traditional chalet style dotted around the Styrian Alps and the Tauern range to the south. These offer a range of home cooked foods and drinks very often with a family running it (there's a great one at Duisitzkarsee south of Schladming with what must the world's most attractive kids helping mum & dad).
Dachsteinsudwandhutte is on ridge that you have to walk to - probably the easiest is from the cable car station and Hotel Turlwand. This route is well marked to the right of the cable car and crosses two ice fields and rocky scree areas so although it's not steep it does require sensible footwear. One of the ways up or down is via Maralm to the west; this is steep and uneven so you definitely need to be a walker for this way (it is however fantastically scenic and quiet).
The hut itself has benches and chairs outside on a platform with amazing views into the valley or above on the cliff faces. Service is via a serving hatch and the food is brought to you (get a table number!). The food is consistent with all these places and consists of good, honest mountain food - try the soups, I've always found these to be homemade and filling. We also had the Sandwich equivalent and there's loads of cheese or ham whichever you choose. Practically the Austrians' second favourite drink is apfeltaft gespritze which is apple juice with soda water; very refreshing and replaces some of the sweating you've done to get there. Same way some of the food is consequently salty. Value is very good and they do tend to be very cheerful even when busy.
Others to look out for? There's Glosalm further down the mountain and Silberkaralm down the valley with beautiful Waterfalls and wild alpine flowers. In fact we didn't find a hut we were disappointed with.
BUT - these are excellent places to stop off and have some refreshment whilst you go from one place to the next; they aren't the destination.

Lodenwalker

Reviewed By Ron W - Fredericksburg, Texas

I guess we have visited Lodenwalker 6-8 times over the last 20 years. My wife likes their knitting yarn as well as their woolen products. I like their woolen vests the best. We have a shrunk-wool blanket from here that we enjoy. When shopping is complete, there is a good restaurant to enjoy. There is a smoking and non-smoking dining room available.

Erlebnis Rittisberg

Reviewed By gehdev - Ashburton, United Kingdom

A lovely open 4-seater chair lift takes you to the top where there are well signposted peace-and-quiet walks with splendid views on open and forest tracks. Not a thrills and spills experience, but lovely. We guess the Rodelbahn experience that runs in parallel would provide at least the thrills. An attraction well served with facilities (just poor signposting to get there).
