It is the contrasts which make the Salzkammergut one of the most attractive regions in Austria. Where nature charms you, where you can relax and feel good, that is the Salzkammergut. From the beautiful plateaus of the Alpine foothills, the blue of the 76 lakes, the lovely mountain pastures and high plains to the rugged Dachstein chalk cliffs, the “Tote” mountain range, the Sensen mountains and Höllen mountain ranges. The Salzkammergut is not short of visual stimuli, contrasts and inspiration.
