The highlight of the Plassen round:The great feeling when you arrive at the highest point, the Durchgangalm, after the crisp ascents of the mountain bike tour!With the Plassen round, mountain bikers can expect a crisp day tour in the Dachstein Salzkammergut. There are two variants to choose from - either we drive directly to the climbs or we loop first and admire the "Gosausee including the Dachstein. About 1500 hm strong is the Plassen Runde. Some highlights pass on the 47 km. These definitely include the Rossalm, the Dachstein, the Plassen, the waterfalls in the Echerntal and the famous Hallstatt. Maybe you will discover one or the other personal highlight that we have missed so far? Option 1: Start tourist office Gosau. We drive to the Gosaubach and further up to the Steinermühle.

There turn left and then left again on the old path. This leads briefly uphill again and flows into the country road again.
