The Silberkarklamm is a romantic white-water canyon in the heart of the Dachstein massif.
From the parking lot above the Lodenwalke in Ramsau Rössing, it goes along the Silberkarbach to the entrance of Silberkar (1.050 m). The trail goes through great, wild nature, past alpine plants and animals in their own Ökoraum. At the end of the gorge opens Silberkar. Formerly a cultivated pasture, now destination for young and old. For families with children the Silberkarhütte is usually the end point of a beautiful hike. For others ist the pasture the starting point for hikes, e.g. to the Guttenberghaus.

Safety on the mountainside: changes in the weather, sudden fall in temperature, thunder storms, wind, fog and snow fields are all objective dangers and require the correct behaviour whilst underway. the landlords of the huts are all very knowledgeable about the mountains and can give you good tips about the weather and the routes. Insufficient equipment, exaggerated opinion of ones capabilities, frivolousness, poor health condition and a false evaluation of the situation can lead to a critical situation. In thunder storms: summits, crest-sites and safety rope aids are to be avoided.

If something should happen call following emergency numbers:
No. 140 - the number for all Alpine Emergencies in all of Austria
No. 112 - European emergency call GSM emergency-call-service

I am planning to do the Silberkarklamm - Guttenberghaus hike on 14th March. Is it safe to do this hike at that time? What general precautions I should take? I will be arriving on Salzburg and do not have a car. What is the easiest way to reach the Silberkarklamm hike from Salzburg. Any trains or buses I can take?
