Gjaid Alm at 1738 Meter

Important: You cannot reach the Gjaid Alm by car!

We are a quaint alpine lodge located on the picturesque plateau below the glacier-capped Dachstein mountain and above the villages of Hallstatt and Obertraun - a region protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Landscape.


We offer accommodations for up to 110 people in double rooms, family rooms and dorms. In the summertime you can enjoy the breathtaking landscape, go hiking, paragliding, climbing or just sit on the terrace and enjoy life in the sun. We have many typical barnyard animals around the lodge, including horses, pigs, cows, sheep and more.


The Gjaid Alm is even beautiful in the rain. It’s a mystical sight when the fog rolls in over the surrounding mountains. On the way from Obertraun up to the Gjaid Alm, you can stop to visit the ice caves, check out the new "Krippenstein Shark" installation or enjoy the panoramic view from the "Five Fingers" lookout at the top of Krippenstein Mountain.


Whether you’re a young family, a hardened mountaineer or simply wish to experience the mountains while visiting Hallstatt or the Salzkammergut - the Gjaid Alm has something for everyone and all are welcome.

How to come here?


You can get to Obertraun by train, bus or car (5 minutes from Hallstatt).

From there, find your way to the "Krippensteinseilbahn" (cable car).

Take all three sections of the cable car up to the final Gjaid Station. 

From there it's an easy 5 minute walk down a moderate slope to our place. We can also pick up your baggage at the cable car station and bring it down for you (contact us for info).
