Over the Lake

The children of the little village of Obertraun eagerly await the arrival of St Nicholas one evening at the beginning of December. It is a very special moment when he is spotted on his traditional wooden boat. He is accompanied by Ruprecht. They carry sacks of treats for the children such as fruits and nuts and chocolate. The children wait on the lake shore with torches in their hands. St Nicholas reads a poem aloud and then disappears again into the darkness.

How about a winter holiday in the world heritage?

The oldest salt mine in the world, the breathtaking "Five Fingers" viewing platform, the view of snow covered Dachstein Glacier from the romantic Lake Gosau - these and more destinations thrilled millions of visitors, from around the world, who visited the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut in summer.

Numerous swimming pools, whirlpools, saunas and steam rooms are available. Or treat yourself to one of the numerous applications such as classical or relaxing massages. Indulge yourself and enjoy the absolute tranquillity between mountains and lakes. Beautiful winter holiday in the world heritage!
