V/A+다는 것 is a short form of the indirect quotation pattern V/A+다고 하는 것, which means "the thing that is called + V/A" and it is used to express what you think the definition or the nature of a certain action/state/verb. 겨울이 가고 봄이 오는 것은 누구나 알고 있다. Everyone knows that spring comes after winter. (knowledge by direct experience) 겨울이 가고 봄이 온다는 것은 누구나 알고 있다. Everyone knows that it is said that spring comes after winter.
