Delve into prehistory at the interactive leisure park!
As a popular skiing and hiking region between Salzburg, Tyrol and Bavaria, the Steinplatte impresses with its sporty highlights for nature lovers. It’s hard to believe that the Tethys primordial ocean and prehistoric reptiles made their home here 200 million years ago. If you want to submerse yourself in this bygone era, the Triassic Park is the perfect place. The interactive adventure park brings history to life like nowhere else. Simply hop into a time capsule… or rather underwater gondola… and head of into the Alpine world of long long long ago.

Open-air highlights & ultra-cool trails
How did the Triassic get its name? What actually is karst? And what do corals look like close up? Of course, you could google the answers but it’s much more exciting to tackle the ‘Triassic Trail’ with its many stations and vantage points and all the tricky puzzles and giant prehistoric reef. Especially now the educational circular trail (approx. 4 km, 210m elevation gain) has been given a cool update. But that’s not all: the ‘Mini Sea’ is home to the 30m long dino tube slide, just waiting to be discovered. And there are plenty of treasures buried at the ‘Triassic Beach’ – the highest altitude sandy beach in the Alps. The low ropes course with its obstacle course is a source of endless fun and the 70m high coral-shaped viewing platform offers pure goose bumps!
Sunny views – in any weather
What to do when it rains? Simple: head to the ‘Triassic Center’ and learn all about the ABC of geology. The latest multi-media technology and life-sized dinosaurs transform complex facts into easy-to-digest information bites – whatever the weather. The latest attraction is a dripstone cave which leads visitors into the depths of prehistory. By the way: die-hard dinosaur fans can even celebrate their dinosaur birthday party here!
The Steinplatte-Winklmoosalm is located in the „Dreiländereck“ Tyrol-Salzburg-Bayern and is easily accessible from both Austria and Germany: on the Austrian side from Waidring in Tirol a 15-man gondola brings you to the top – on the German side you can take the road from Seegatterl/Reit im Winkl to the top. Right smack in the middle of the mountains, located on a beautiful, sunny plateau.
Get to the popular ski and hiking paradise of the Steinplatte easily and uncomplicated via Reit im Winkl or Waidring.
