Hiking to the Zwieselam

© Kraft | Wanderung vom Gosausee auf die Zwieselalmbei Ihrem Wanderurlaub im Salzkammergut

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.
