Our mountains
in the Dachstein Salzkammergut


Fun facts

For a long time the High Dachstein was written with a height of 3 004 m, but in fact it "only" has 2 995 m. One assumes that this had touristic reasons.

The nose of the Native American at the "Hohe Kalmberg" is regularly cleaned by the local mountain rescue service.
