May 18th - October 04th, 2023

Like a picture book, the Salzkammergut unfolds before the visitor.

In December 1997 the “Hallstatt - Dachstein / Salzkammergut” region joined the list of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. The UNESCO recognized a big part of the Inner Salzkammergut as a World Heritage site worth to be preserved. With 76 crystal clear lakes, a magical mountain world with rich green Alpine pastures contrasting jagged rock faces up to the 3000 m high Dachstein glacier the Salzkammergut offers amazing diversity and beauty for its visitors.
