White Horse Inn, Imperial Summer Residence and UNESCO Heritage.

‘Most beautiful country in all time’ an old folk song claims and this quote truly applies to the Austrian Salzkammergut. Mountains, lakes and picturesque places belong to one of the most beautiful treasures of the world. This uniqueness has been recognized by UNESCO and the region Hallstatt has been declared UNESCO Heritage of nature and culture.

Character

Moderate Walking

This tour combines pleasant hike trip with culture and places of interest. The walking paths are good, there are just some short ascents on smaller serpentine paths. We can recommend this tour for families.
