Description

After approx. 1.5 hours of hiking you reach the historic grinding stone quarries. For a long time they were one of the most important sources of income for the population of Gosau at 1350 m above sea level. This tradition has been preserved until today and is an important part of the history of Gosau. Every Tuesday and Saturday the Gosau slow train travels to the grinding stone quarries. With the hiking guide Betty you have the possibility to get to know the unique Löckernmoos with the small moor lake and to have overwhelming views of the Gosaukamm.
