Description

The tour leads through the picturesque landscape of the UNESCO World Heritage Region Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut. After the start in Bad Goisern, the tour goes along the Hallstättersee east shore. An imposing suspension bridge leads directly over the deepest point of the lake. Passing the train station of Hallstatt the round takes you further to Obertraun. A detour to the Krippenstein to the 5fingers or Welterbespirale viewing platforms is recommended here. But also the interior of the mountain invites you to take a detour, like the Dachstein Giant Ice Cave or the Mammut Cave. In the historic town of Hallstatt, too, the salt worlds offer an insight into salt mining. From the centre of the village you take a boat back to the eastern shore of Lake Hallstättersee and back to the starting point.Start in Bad Goisern - Goiserermühle, tourist office, Mauna Loa; Moserwirt - via Au - past the Gasthof zur Post (stopover tip) to the left to the Ostuferwander- und radweg - along the lake to Seerauzn (stopover tip) - left up a small gradient, then right again - continue via Hallstatt railway station to Obertraun - Dachsteinhof; Höllwirt - along the Koppenwinkel circuit to the Koppenwinkel lake past the valley station of the Dachstein World Heritage cable car - back to Obertraun and along the cycle path to Hallstatt - past the Salzwelten - on to the historic town centre - tourist office - by boat back to the Ostuferwander- und Raddweg and back via the Seerauzn (stopover tip) and Gasthof zur Post (stopover tip) back to Bad GoisernIn case of emergencies please call the Austrian mountain rescue on the telephone number: 140 https://www.dachstein-panorama.at/?s=pano68570" https://www.dachstein-panorama.at/?s=pano68570 "For the 360° tour through Bad Goisern ...
