The hike through the 'Tor' (gate), is known as one of the most impressive hikes in Ramsau's pasture region at the foot of the Dachstein.

The impressive south walls of the Dachstein, Mitterspitz and Torstein, make this an unforgettable tour. An alpine path leads you through gravel and forestry trails.

Neustattalm

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting at Neustattalm, the path follows through a larch forest to the Maralmboden and onto the Bachlalm. Partly over scree fields, the path leads up to the Tor, the natural notch between the Raucheck and Torstein mountains. A short, but steep descent along Pernerweg (path no. 617) passes Dachstein's south face along to the Südwandhütte. From there, make your way back down to the Dachstein gondola base station and follow the Dachstein road to your starting point.

Great, beautiful hike. We've done it with 7j and 10j kids. It's not very demanding in summer, no technical difficulties. Descent from Tor is steep but there is no exposition.
