  A view from Krippenstain to the Lake Of Hallstatt
by Gentleman75

Favorite thing: Krippenstein is 2100m high above sea-level, so if You are in good condition then You can climb this mountain or You can choose the Dachstein Cable Car to get there.

The cable car starts from Obertraun (it's about 5km from Hallstatt on side of the Lake Hallstatt).
The cable car has three stops:
1. Valley station Obertraun 608 m
2. Middlelstation Schönbergalm 1350 m
3. Top station Krippenstein 2100 m

From Krippenstein there is an excellent view to the lake.
At the middlestation there are two caves (Ice Cave and Mammoth Cave). It's worth to visit these caves.

You can buy combined ticket about 25-30 Euro (I don't remember the exact price).
It contains an Obertraun - Krippenstein return fare, a one time entrance to the Mammoth and the Ice cave and a photo.

Fondest memory: There is an excellent view to the Lake of Hallstatt from Krippenstein - if the weather is good.

You have to just enjoy the silence here.
