For more than 250 million years the salt has been resting protected and untouched in the mountains of the Salzkammergut. On a guided tour through a show mine of the salt worlds in Altaussee, Hallstatt or Hallein you will get deep into the world of the white gold.

 

Today the longing for origin and idyllic nature is greater than ever. In the Almtal in the Salzkammergut region of Traunsee-Almtal, people seek out authentic, vibrant experiences in the forest – and thereby promote their own health.

 

The Salzkammergut enchants in many ways. A paradise for those with a sweet tooth are the traditional coffee houses and pastry shops. It is probably the sweetest way to discover tradition, customs and culture - and to taste them.
