Obertraun is a village situated on the east bank of Lake Hallstatt and is on the north side of the Dachstein mountain range. Obertraun lies within the UNESCO World Heritage area of the Salzkammergut which is famous for the salt mining which has taken place there since before 2000BC. Hallstatt itself is a must see with its historic Baroque style houses clinging to to the steep mountain slopes of the edge of the Hallstatter See. A 5 minute drive from our apartment takes you to the new panorama cable cars which access the Dachstein World of Ice Caves and Hiking World-a network of well laid out hiking paths with breathtaking views. The same cable cars access the Krippenstein ski area with it's 11km run and 30Km of off-piste terrain. At the bathing beach on the lake you will find boats to rent, a children's play area, sun bathing areas and a snack bar. In the town itself you will find a selection of restaurants, a supermarket, bank, taxi, bike rental. bowling, ski hire etc.

Ski: Our apartment is within a short drive of several ski areas. Just 5 minutes drive is the Krippenstein Freeride arena which is well known for it's off piste challenges. The krippenstein has a 11 km pisted run and 30 km of spectacular off piste skiing. The family friendly Dachtein West ski areas of Gosau and Russbach are a 20 minute drive away and total 140 km of piste. Both Gosau and Russbach offer excellent ski school facilities and Russbach has a creche for non skiing children under 5 which we could personally recommend. Driving for 20 minute in the opposite direction brings you to the ski area of Loser offering 29km of piste.
