Triassic Parc Steinplatte

At Mt. Steinplatte (1,869 m a.s.l.) in the Pillersee Valley, there is the highest-located sand beach of the Alps

Some years ago, a discovery park was established on Mt. Steinplatte: All started about 250 million years ago, in the age of dinosaurs, when the primordial ocean Tethys covered huge surfaces. Europe's only dry reef of these days was... yes, exactly, the Steinplatte mountain (1,869 m a.s.l.).

In a gondola ride, you reach the Triassic Park Steinplatte (Triassic Park Steinplatte) from Waidring. First you may visit the 400 sqm large Triassic Centre, where you can observe a replication of the primordial ocean. Then, on the 4 km long Triassic Trail, suitable for prams, you reach the Triassic Beach. Here, at the highest located beach of the Alps, children can dig for fossils, search treasures, and splash around. But take care: Two dinosaurs are up to mischief along the trail.

Also the walkable waterfall and the low-rope course "Robinienpark" are were realized in the last years. New, however, is the stalactite cave. By the way: The Triassic Parc is open also in winter, when it offers - besides the Triassic Trail, the Triassic Funline and the cave - also the coral-shaped viewing platform, one of the largest viewpoints of Austria. Nothing for the faint-hearted!
