dachstein glacier world


"Freedom must be boundless above the clouds" sang Reinhard Mey back in the 1980s.

And anyone who has ever been on the Dachstein glacier knows how right he is.

The 2,995 metre high Dachstein is the highest mountain in Styria and is located amid a stunning alpine landscape. From the Dachstein you have a panoramic view over the peaks of Austria as far as the Czech Republic and Slovenia.
