Dachstein glacier currently closed


The mountain station of the Dachstein cable car is being completely renovated and therefore the operation of the Dachstein glacier cable car is currently suspended. This means that it is also not possible to visit the attractions like Stairway to Nothingness, Dachstein Skywalk, Dachstein Ice Palace, Suspension Bridge and the restaurant! The construction work is expected to last until May 2024.
The toll for the Dachstein Road must also be paid during the conversion work.
We kindly ask for your understanding!

Within the Christmas period from Monday, December 25th until Sunday, January 7th a limited public service is expected to operate.
