Dachstein Shark

Obertraun, Oberösterreich, Österreich

The new attraction on Heilbronn Circular trail is the Dachstein - shark.
The primeval shark is 8 metres long and is one of the attractions on the Krippenstein.

The popular photo spot is only a 30 minutes walk along the Heilbronn Circular trail, away from the mountain station of the Dachstein-Krippenstein cable car.
Brave visitors can climb into the stomach of the giant creature, a view from the mouth of the Dachstein shark offers fantastic views of the Dachstein Glacier.
A visit is well worth the effort.
The Dachstein shark to show that even the Dachstein massif was covered millions of years ago with sea water and the primeval sharks have lived in this area.
The new visitor attraction took place in August 2013. The shark was sunk deep within Lake Hallstatt, and spectacularly „rescued“ from the water a few days later by helicopter and then flown to be at its destination.
