Dachstein High Altitude Circular Path

8 Days | Self-guided tour
Sitting at 3,000 metres above sea level, the ‘majesty’ rises above the other mountains: the Dachstein. The imposing glacier clad peak separates the Austrian provinces of Styria, Salzburg and Upper Austria and is a popular trekking area due to its magnificent beauty. The Dachstein high altitude circuit trails through secluded valleys, alpine meadows and high plateaus that, with their solitude and silence, make the heart beat a little faster.  Details about the hiking holiday in the Dachstein region Mountain hikers will not be disappointed with the Dachstein high altitude circuit. The eight-day trekking tour around the Dachstein offers a fascinating view of the Alps and the Salzkammergut. In addition, it holds true treasures: including the 2,458 metre high ‘Bishop’s Cap’, which owes its name to the characteristic shape of the double summit. Or the Soleweg, which leads along the historic salt pipeline to the Hallstatt salt mine. In the Styrian Dachstein plateau fragrant pine trees line the path to the Stoderzinken. Having arrived at the Brno hut, you will then taste a ‘Zirbenschaps’. Look forward to a demanding hike for mountain enthusiasts around this limestone region.
