World Heritage Advent in the Dachstein Salzkammergut

Once a year, when the last leaves have already fallen and the first snow decorates the meadows of the forests, Advent comes to the Dachstein Salzkammergut. And with it a very special atmosphere, the peculiarity of which lies in the tranquillity and contemplation.
