What is the World Heritage Activity Project?
We can organise the perfect programme of activities for you, and there is a wide variety of themes to choose from: culture, Geography, sports and outdoor pursuits, History or Geology. Discover the Dachstein region for yourself, learn about the history of salt mining and discover the lakes and mountains during your stay in one of our four World Heritage communities - Bad Goisern, Hallstatt, Obertraun or Gosau.
Together with your students you can choose from our specialised activity programmes for summer or winter. These programmes have been recently put together, and we always have lots of ideas and suggestions to suit your specific interests. Whatever you choose, we guarantee that the time you spend with your students in the Inner Salzkammergut will never be forgotten, and our rates are very competitive too.
Our mission is, with your support, to familiarise young people with our World Heritage Region. Our motto is „No heritage without children“. The World Heritage Activity and Project Days serve not only to promote the Dachstein Salzkammergut Holiday Region, but also supports us in our aim to enable young people to discover one of Europe’s World Heritage sites. This is also an opportunity to enjoy physical exercise in natural surroundings and build in some time for personal reflection too.
The organised programmes of activities are a welcome relief for teachers. However, we remain flexible, and the activities can be re-arranged according to your individual needs and requests, whether you are with us just for the day, or are here for a longer visit.
A one-stop service
You will be all too familiar with the endless planning and preparation involved in organising a school trip or activity day out. Hours of searching for the right activities, lengthy phone calls and a huge pile of price lists. Our colleagues at the Inner Salzkammergut Tourist Authorities will do all this on your behalf. We are pleased to be able to offer you a special planning and organising service for your school's visit to the Dachstein Salzkammergut Region, free of charge. There will be no need to carry cash with you throughout your visit either. At the end of your visit you will receive a complete breakdown of costs per pupil.
As regional project manager with a vast knowledge of the area, I would be delighted to answer all your questions on the region and assist in the planning of the various school projects personally. I will be available for the duration of your visit too, and will be happy to accompany you and your group, if you so wish, as you enjoy the various different activities.
I will, of course, help you in finding suitable accommodation in the region for you and your group.
These World Heritage activity breaks are aimed especially at school groups, all year round, and are promoted by the European Union as well as the Upper Austrian regional authorities. Our services are, of course, available to schools and groups from around the world!
