Cool down needed?
Kneipp facility in Weißenbach bei Haus
Our dogs love to cool off after a long hike or on a warm summer day. While some throw themselves right into the cool water and don't want to come out, others prefer to cool off just the tips of their paws in the little stream.
On this round, all dogs get their money's worth. Around the Kneipp facility, there are many streams and a larger brook in which the four-legged friends can play and cool off. And also the owners can cool down here, because the Kneipp facility can be used daily free of charge during the summer months.
Note: The Kneipp facility itself is not usable for dogs, here the four-legged friends have to wait until their humans have cooled down, and the fun can continue for them at the next little stream.
The entire area around the Kneipp facility is located in the forest and therefore nice and shady in the summer and pleasantly cool for walking.
Please note that you have to keep your dog on a leash or muzzle! So that you can still offer your dog enough free space for swimming or romping, we recommend that you take a tow or flexi leash with you.
Arrival: Coming from Schladming and Liezen, follow the Ennstalbundesstraße (B320) to the Haus im Ennstal turnoff. Then continue to Weißenbach. From the village square in Weißenbach, an asphalt road leads to the left past the village chapel in the direction of Sonnberg. At the junction Sonnberg-Aich there is a free parking lot. From there, follow the signposted trail through the forest to the Kneipp facility.
For water bugs
For the swimmers among our dogs and a nice bathing day for you we can recommend the Grundlsee in Aussee. This is about an hour's drive from us. Dogs are allowed at all bathing places except the public lawn.
Cool down for our two- and four-legged friends in Ramsau am Dachstein
The Ramsau Beach at the foot of the Rittisberg is within walking distance and provides a cool down on hot summer days. Your dog may accompany you on a leash on the sunbathing lawn, but not in the water.
To give your dog a refreshment, we recommend the Mühlenweg. This starts at the Hotel Almfrieden (address: Leiten 47, 8972 Ramsau am Dachstein) and leads you along the stream to the old mill and back again.
