The cable car is part of the ski area Dachstein - West. Because of its low temperatures of the lake front Gosausee is swimming not so popular for divers appreciate the very clear water.

The hike around the lake "Vorderer Gosausee" is 4.3 kilometers long and as the entire height difference is only 25 meters is the hike for the whole family suitable. The beautiful trail is suitable for strollers or wheelchairs. From the Inn Gosausee the walk starts on the left, sunnier side of the lake Front Gosausee. At first a few meters long there are always some mountain bikers they come from, or bike to the Roßalm. But the road is wide enough and so mountain bikers and hikers will pass each other wonderfully. After about one kilometer, at the foot of the mountain Lärchkogel was on a length of about 200m a wide path from the blown up vertically in the Middle Gosausee cliffs. At the foot of Gosaukamm one then goes back to the starting point at the cosy inn Gosausee back. On the way back there on Gosausee some places where the shore is very flat and invites people to stay.
