Dachstein Salzkammergut World Heritage Region
Tradition and breathtaking landscapes in the heart of Europe
The heart of the Austrian Salzkammergut is renowned for its spectacular scenery. The
Dachstein Salzkammergut World Heritage Region is just a stone’s throw from Salzburg –
Mozart’s birthplace – and has more than 7000 years of salt mining history. The region
consists of the four neighbourhoods of Bad Goisern, Gosau, Hallstatt and Obertraun, and is
a natural and cultural gem. It was declared a World Heritage Region in 1997. Embedded
between the spectacular mountain formations and the crystal clear lakes is a wealth of
culture and tradition which have been developed by local people throughout the ages.
The Majestic Dachstein: a mountain with a character of its own
This mountain massif is known also by the locals as „King Dachstein“. Its peaks tower
majestically into the sky, and its glacial ice glistens all year round. At the foot of the
mountain, the idyllic Lake Gosau is perfect for flat walks. There are a multitude of trails
leading through meadows and areas of high mountain pasture, and there are numerous
rustic wooden huts where you can stop off and take a break and enjoy the panoramic views.
There are many mountain gondolas throughout the region, including the one which takes you up to the „5fingers“ viewing platform on the Krippenstein. From here visitors enjoy fantastic views down to Lake Hallstatt and the surrounding area.
Ice Caves: Music and magic in the mountains
Seldom do we see the beauty of nature from this angle. Vistors enter a mystical labyrinth of
caves just a few paces from the Krippenstein cable car summit station. The Giant Ice Caves
are magical with their spectacular rock and ice formations which visitors can explore,
together with an experienced guide, who will explain the formation of the caves. One of the
highlights of the year is the series of concerts which take place throughout August.
International musicians fill the caves with the sounds of their music, and genres range from
Barock to the more traditional singing quartet.
Hallstatt and the Salt Mines: Culture you can reach out and touch
Hallstatt is, without doubt, one of Europe’s cultural highlights, and is well worth a visit. Above
the village can be found the oldest salt mine in the world. This is still in operation today, and
a guided tour of its galleries makes for a very interesting excursion. There are numerous
historic buildings clustered around the market square in the heart of the village. The
picturesque houses nestle together between the steep mountain sides and the shore of the
lake, and create a unique panoramic picture. Other attractions include the historic
excavations, the museum and the circular theme trail. Discover more about the lives of the
Celts, Romans and salt miners who once lived here
Authentic handicrafts in the Hand.Werk.Haus
Traditional handicrafts have always been important here in the Dachstein Salzkammergut.
Many local people can be seen wearing traditional dress, including leather trousers. The
manufacture of violins, carpentry or the making of traditional national cosume are skills that
have been handed down from generation to generation. These local crafts are exhibited in
the Hand.Werk.Haus Bad in Goisern.
