This is where Russbach shows its child-friendly side. Then new Bear Camp and Sparrow's Nest children's Club offer great attractions as well as free practice ski lifts and fun and games in the snow!

All snow bears meet in the Bear Camp. The practice lifts, fun figures, and conveyor belt are all centrally situated in the valley area. No long journey times or lifts separate the kids from their first attempts on their skis. The lifts are free for all children under the age of 6 years. A very friendly team of qualified ski instructors ensure quick success for your children’s first attempts at skiing.
The Sparrow's Nest (from 1 year) celebrates its 5th birthday this year and has moved next to the Bear Camp!

As not all young children want to spend all day on the slopes children aged 3-5 years can transfer to the cosy indoor life of the Rußbach "Sparrow's Nest". Here the youngsters can have something to eat and drink and of course there are lots of toys to keep them happy. Trained teaching staff ensures fun and games for the children.

The Dachstein Caves.
There are three natural caves open to the public and is one of Austria most significant natural Monuments. The Ice Cave (Eishöhle), the Mammut Cave (Mammumthöhle) and the Water Cave (Koppenbrüllerhöhle). Each cave is spectacular and it is well worth visiting all three. In addition to the regular guided tours it is possible to opt for adventure tours for children as well as adults. See the above link for more information. All the caves offer English speaking tours.
The Ice Cave and the Mammut cave are reached by taking the cable car to the first stage.

The Giant Ice Cave.
This is one of the largest ice caves in the world and attracts at least 150,000 visitors each year. The guided tours will take you deep into the cave and you will see the magnificent ice formations, stalagmites and ice masses some as thick as 25m. The tour is approximately 1 hour long as is suitable for all ages. The cave temperature seldom rises about freezing so you will need a jacket and non slips shoes.

The Mammut Cave
It is the sheer size of this cave that gives it is name. at present 60kms of passageways are explored, but only 1 km can be visited on the regular guided tour.

The cave is one of the longest and deepest caves in the world. The tour lasts an hour and is suitable for all.

The Water Cave
The Kroppenbrüller Cave is located along the bank of the River Traun at the far end of the village. The tour lasts approximately 1 hour and explains about the formation of the cave and the power of underground streams.

This cave offers a unique experience for children - Cave Trekking. These tours mean you explore the winding passages, washed out by underground waterflows. You get a hard hat with a lamp and protective suit. You will have to belly crawl and climb to explore all the passages and much more!

The 5 fingers viewing platform
If you take the cable car to the top station you can explore the many walks and trails. The 5 Fingers viewing platform was opened last autumn and juts out from the mountain side. It gives you a spectacular view across the area. The route to the platform is suitable for all – even pushchairs. You will probably get to see paragliders taking off as you walk the trail.

Those of you who are more adventurous there are many to follow – for example you can follow the route right down to the bottom cable car station (11kms) or over to Hallstatt or just follow the circular route (3hours approx). There are maps available so you can’t get lost! It is possible to stay in one of the many huts over night should you wish to.

The town of Hallstatt is less than 4 kms by road or alternatively you can take the lake steamer and get a magnificent view of the town as you arrive.

The Salzberg, a local mountain of Hallstatt, contains salt mines which hold the distinction of being the oldest operational mines in the entire world. Due to the many archaeological discoveries from the early Iron Age which were found in the area, an entire cultural era came to be known as the Hallstatt Period (800-400 B.C.E). Since salt mining activities continue at present in the Salzkammergut, the area can also be considered the oldest industrial community in the world.

The new HALLSTATT WORLD CULTURAL HERITAGE Museum covers 7000 years of the history of the area. The new Hallstatt World Cultural Heritage Museum provides visitors with interesting insights into the culture of this fascinating World Cultural Heritage Resort. Learning more about the cultural history of this region is real fun. With a great variety of visual effects and activities everyone in your family will have a great time at the Hallstatt World Cultural Heritage Museum!

Salt Mine
The mine in Hallstatt has 7,000 years of history to discover. The "Man in Salt" accompanies the visitors on their journey through time at the Salzwelten Hallstatt.

Since 2002, the "Man in Salt" is the central theme of the re-designed Salzwelten mines. In 1734, a corpse preserved in salt was discovered right in a salt deposit, a contemporary chronicle describing it as "pressed flat and tightly grown into the rock. Clothing and tools were quite strange but well preserved."

The entrance to the mine is high above the town itself and the first part of you journey is the cable car ride. Form there it is a 15 minute walk to the main entrance where you are fitted out with protective clothing and then you can start your journey into the mine. This is a great attraction for the whole family. Unfortunately, the mine is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

Open daily from the end of May to the end of October.
