UNESCO World Heritage Site

historical cultural landscape

The award of this accolade puts the Dachstein/Hallstatt-Salzkammergut region on an equal footing on the UNESCO list alongside such wonders as the Pyramids of Giza, the excavations of Pompeii, the Great Wall of Chinaand the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador.

The richly diverse historical and cultural landscape of the Dachstein region, with its cornucopia of flora and fauna, make it a World Natural Heritage site of the very highest order.
