Sightseeing Dachstein and Hallstatt

Sat, 2016-10-15 07:15 - 21:00

Join this year's “Dachstein” trip and visit the highest mountain in Styria and Upper Austria.

We’ll go up the mountain by cable car and have a guided tour in English in the Mammoth Cave. Afterwards, we are going to the spectacular viewing platform 5fingers. There you’ll have a wonderful view of the Hallstättersee lake and the Salzkammergut, which is a UNESCO World Heritage.

In the afternoon, we will visit the well-known town Hallstatt. It is so beautiful that the Chinese built a replica of it. The town of Hallstatt could develop because of the salt deposit nearby. Salt is still mined there today.

Here is a little guide about the Dachstein trip with several important remarks:

  1. Please bring your confirmation sheets which you got during sign-up
  2. Please make sure to wear good shoes (no Flip-Flops or something like that!)
  3. Take warm clothes because it is cold in the cave and on the mountain (2995 meter); on the mountain there may be snow
  4. Bring an umbrella in case of rain
  5. Prepare some snacks and beverages because it will be expensive in the restaurant on the mountain and we may not have enough time to get food there
  6. Bring sun screen if it is sunny
  7. Don't forget your camera
  8. Happy mood and lots of excitement!
