Things to Do in Rußbach

Russbach is a rather touristy corner of the Tennengau and is well-connected to the Dachstein region; some hiking and fossil hunting in the summer. Main season is the winter, when the local skiing region targets mainly families with kids and to some extent elderly and local people. Cheaper than the fancy ressorts in the South, but already a proper skiing area. A bit off the main traffic routes.
