Peaceful oases between lakes and mountains

Probably the most beautiful places in the world to take a break whilst hiking are on the Alpine pastures or in romantic mountain huts around Lake Hallstatt. And when hunger strikes whilst out hiking, then look no further: Cool refreshing drinks and hearty home-style cooking ensure a cosy rustic atmosphere. Everything your heart desires!

Whether a long day hike or a leisurely family excursion - a glass of fresh milk, accompanied by freshly baked farmhouse bread with delicious bacon or fresh alpine cheese – an experience not to be missed! Whether serviced Alpine pastures or rustic mountain huts, here you will find the most beautiful peaceful oases in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut.

Alpine life - a piece of culture!

However, the Alpine pastures and mountain huts around Lake Hallstatt are far more than just destinations for hikers and have an important role within Austrian culture. For now, just as in the past, farm animals such as sheep or cattle are driven up onto the pastures in the summer where many products are manufactured onsite by the milkmaids and dairymen who also spend the summer months on the pasture. Towards the end of the summer the animals are then colourfully decorated and driven back down into the valley. A unique cultural asset still alive around Lake Hallstatt and Gosau.

Wandern in der UNESCO Welterberegion Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut ist meditieren im Gehen. Schritt für Schritt nähert man sich nicht nur dem Gipfel, sondern auch seiner ganz persönlichen Geschwindigkeit. Das Leben verlangsamt sich, der Kopf wird frei, man lebt im Moment und genießt. Genau so soll sich Urlaub in der Ferienregion Dachstein Salzkammergut anfühlen! Die schönsten Wanderziele rund um den Hallstattersee und Gosausee finden Sie in unserem großen Tourenüberblick.
