Book your place in the gondola >>

What is the capacity of the cable car?

For closed vehicles (gondolas), a capacity of 75% currently applies (1 gondola on the Dachstein= 45 people/gondola). An FFP2 mask is mandatory during the trip.

Are the gondolas ventilated and regularly disinfected?

The gondolas are ventilated as well as possible and regularly disinfected.

Where must a face mask be worn?

FFP2 masks are mandatory 

  • in buildings
  • in toilets
  • in the gondola/cabin including stations
  • in the bus
  • in restaurants
  • as well as in any situation where 1 metre of distance is not possible

mandatory for everyone over the age of 14 (children from six years of age can use conventional face masks).
There is no mask requirement for children under the age of 6.

You have to bring your own FFP2 masks (you can also purchase on site at the cash desk for EUR 2.00 each).

Where do I have to keep the minimum distance of 1 metre?

In all queuing situations such as at the cash desk, in the cable car station, at the bus stop, as well as in all publicly accessible buildings (toilets...).

What options are there to buy my ticket?

Recommendation: Buy the ticket in advance as part of the online reservation and save yourself the trip to the cash desk

Season ticket holders and guests with the Schladming-Dachstein Summer Card do not have to go to the cash desk, but can go straight through to the gondola entrance. (Attention, you need a valid gondola reservation.)

What do I need to know for the Sky Walk?

The 1-metre minimum distance must be observed.

What do I need to know for the suspension bridge with the stairs to nowhere and the Ice Palace?

The Ice Palace is open, access is only via the suspension bridge and the stairs to nowhere (one-way rule). Since these attractions are a combined offer with an indoor leisure facility (Ice Palace), according to the COVID-19 regulation, the following measures apply, which must be observed from the turnstile at the suspension bridge:

  • A test, vaccination or antibody certificate (medical confirmation) must be presented.
  • You must register using the QR code.
  • An FFP2 mask is mandatory in the Ice Palace. It does not have to be worn on the suspension bridge or the stairs to nowhere.
  • The 1-metre minimum distance must be observed at all attractions.

Is the Dachstein glacier restaurant open?

The Dachstein glacier restaurant is open. 
According to the COVID-19 regulations, the following measures must be observed:

  • A test, vaccination or antibody certificate (medical confirmation) must be presented.
  • You must register in the hut using the QR code.
  • FFP2 masks are compulsory (except for when seated).
  • The 1-metre minimum distance must be observed.
  • Per table, 8 adults including a maximum of 6 children can sit indoors and 16 adults including a maximum of 10 children outdoors

Is it possible to do a self-test on site?

No, we do not offer a self-test on site. In the Dachstein glacier restaurant and at the attractions (suspension bridge, stairs to nowhere and Ice Palace) a test, vaccination or antibody certificate is mandatory.

How do you get to the Dachstein Gletscherbahn cable car?

Use of the Dachstein toll road with your own car is free for cable car users. 
When you drive up, you will receive the toll ticket, which must be validated at the Dachstein mountain station. This makes the use of the toll road free of charge.

When taking the Dachstein glacier bus (RVB bus) you only have to pay for the bus ticket or scan your Summer Card. With a valid reservation for the Dachstein Gletscherbahn cable car there is no toll fee.

How will I be informed about the Corona safety regulations on site?

Information signs and loudspeaker announcements on site will keep you informed of the current COVID-19 safety regulations.

Which measures apply to the cable car employees?

  • All employees who are in direct customer contact either wear a face mask or are physically separated from you by suitable protective measures (e.g. plexiglass).
  • The employees of the cable car companies are trained or instructed according to uniform guidelines and regulations about the COVID-19 safety measures.
  • All employees of the cable car companies are subjected to daily health checks (temperature measurements, symptom control). In the event of suspicion, tests are carried out immediately and employees are immediately isolated from the company organisation.
  • We have an employee responsible for COVID-19 who plans and implements the measures.

It is your own responsibility to keep the necessary distance of 1 metre from other visitors.
