Sports & adventure

Paragliders and hang-gliders can use the Fulseck cable car to get to the summit at 2033 m above sea level and then take to the skies! Following a breathtaking flying experience, hang-gliders and paragliders can land in meadows in the valley set aside specifically for them (separate meadows for each sport). Record jumps are a regular occurrence in Dorfgastein!

If you’re a keen mountain biker, not only can you ride your bike here in Dorfgastein, but you can also take it on the cable car with you up to the halfway station! The marked cycling trails will take you past a number of Alpine taverns to the Hauserbauer Alpine Inn or to Harbach (Bad Hofgastein region).

Thanks to a new trail that leads up to the Fulseck summit, it is now possible to cycle from Dorfgastein to Fulseck via one direct route. As long as you’re prepared to conquer an altitude difference of 1170m, that is!

Dorfgasteiner Bergbahnen AG also encourages visitors to enjoy the new trendy sport of Nordic walking on Fulseck. Dorfgastein’s motto is “A fit and healthy lifestyle” and as such, it offers a range of attractive walking routes with beautiful mountain backdrops. Whether you regard Nordic walking as a leisure activity or you want to use it as a conditioning sport, the Fulseck offers all the facilities you need to enjoy it in amongst the splendour of the Dorfgastein mountain scenery. The main idea is to get you to top up your energy reserves while enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings!
