The Dachstein is one of the most interesting peaks in Austria. As the northernmost Alpine peak at almost 3000 meters, it was the magical attraction of all early cultures for thousands of years. With the salt finds in Hallstatt and a possible settlement, there are numerous and ancient evidence of these first settlers around the Dachstein. The mountain itself is a unique climbing paradise - not only from the outside, because it also has its treasures inside. The ice and mammoth cave are among the most extensive cave labyrinths in Europe. Whichever side you approach the Dachstein from, you will be enchanted by its unique scenic beauty. Another reason to go on vacation.
