in the centre of Austria, lies the captivating World Heritage region of Dachstein Salzkammergut.
The unique combination of the culture and settlement with breath-taking natural views won the region the UNESCO title of ‘historic cultural landscape of Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut’ as a World Natural Heritage and Wold Cultural Heritage site.

In the Gosau valley, you can enjoy a wide range of activities, strolling up to the Kalvarienberg, swimming in the clear Gosausee lake or go for a climbing session in the Dachstein are just a few of them.

Friends of culture and natural history will also find their fare in the Salzkammergut. “ The Man in the Salt” in Hallstatt or “Primeval forest” in Gosau show impressively the quite moved history behind the villages of the Salzkammergut.
