Outdoor fun for big & small on the local mountain of Dorfgastein.
Let's go to the mountains. Already the ascent at 2,033 meters above sea level leaves you speechless. The Fulseck offers a unique panorama with numerous hiking routes. At the Fulseck all leisure activities are under the motto "adventure - thermals and summit happiness". Besides the mountain lake, the Fulseck also convinces with a forest playground for children. Instead of the footpath down to the valley, a flight with the tandem paraglider is an option.
Here you will certainly find the right activity for you:
At 1,860 meters above sea level, it will be time to pull off your boots and take a walk along the "Barefoot Path". The different surfaces will massage your feet, and the cold water in the mountain lake will feel marvelously refreshing. You will be overcome by a sense of complete wellbeing, and, after your invigorating foot massage, a number of oases of relaxation alongside the lake invite you to pause and enjoy. Kids hungry for added adventure won't be able to resist the adjacent forest playground, where they can climb, jump and dig around. The Mirror Lake wellness oasis is located just a little below the mountain station, easy to reach even pushing a pram thanks to the broad pathways.
Hiking paths aren't just incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating, they can often be insightful and educational. That's definitely the case on the Fulseck, for example, where you will discover self-guided theme paths, as well as hikes leading to places of extraordinary natural power and beauty.
On the Mushroom Path, children and adults alike will learn all about the fascinating mushrooms that grow naturally in Gastein Valley. Info boards along the way explain which can be collected and safely used for cooking.
If you take a walk from the Fulseck mountain station along the Biotope Trail towards the Arltörl and then downhill to the mid-station, you might already be able to sense them: “places of power”, where the Earth's energies are tangibly more intense, flank the path, inviting you to pause, reflect and re-energize.
Hiking trails not only bring a high recreational factor, but often also new and educational. This is also the case at the nature experience mountain Fulseck in Dorfgastein, where you will find power places, the mushroom trail, the Jaga trail or the flower trail.
