Breakfast on the mountain

Breakast in a traditional wooden hut on a high mountain plateau: the perfect start to a day out in the Holiday Region Dachstein Salzkammergut

„There is nothing sinful up in the mountains“ ...

… apart from a wickedly good breakfast! Start your day with something a little different. Treat your body, mind and soul, and tickle your taste buds with regional food specialities, freshly prepared by local farmers. And all this in the heart of the stunning Dachstein massif. You  will enjoy your hearty breakfast whilst listening to the sound of nature’s own orchestra. Delightful are the sounds of the cow bells and the humming of the bees amongst the colourful alpine plants and flowers. The singing of the many different birds adds to this delightful experience.
