Amusement park for kids in Dachstein West

Awaiting you at this amusement park…
Prehistoric Forest in Gosau
The 25 adventure stations in the Prehistoric Forest in Gosau are located on a total area of 12,000 square meters – right at the foot of the Dachstein massif in Gosau. For you that means: virtually limitless room to marvel, experience and explore. After all, it isn’t every day you encounter an authentic replica of a mammoth, pterosaur or a giant insect. And certainly not here in Salzburg of Upper Austria.
Touching is allowed during a family expedition through the Prehistoric Forest!
All of the lovingly created figures which you will discover throughout the Prehistoric Forest aren’t just there for the kids to look at. Quite the opposite: They were made for the youngsters to climb on, touch, and simply have a good time. And sometimes things even get a little bit wet, especially in summer, when the water play stations are a constant buzz of activity from morning until evening.

Tip from Cleverix for a successful family excursion to Gosau
A day spent amongst the dinosaurs during your family holidays in Austria is certain to work up an appetite. Good to know, then, that you have plenty of refreshment opportunities inside the Prehistoric Forest Amusement Park as well. For example, at the “Prehistoric Garden” restaurant. My secret tip for those really hot summer days at the foot of the Dachstein: Make a side trip to the idyllic Gosausee, a park located right next to this amusement park. A great opportunity for a spot of boating, swimming, and to gaze on the magnificent Dachstein massif.
Very close to the Tennengau region, in the Upper Austrian part of the Salzkammergut, the Prehistoric Forest lies right next to the Gosau Open-Air Museum. Parking is available right there at the amusement park!
