Hallstatt-Dachstein / Salzkammergut Cultural Landscape
Human activity in the magnificent natural landscape
of the Salzkammergut began in prehistoric times, with the salt deposits
being exploited as early as the 2nd millennium BC. This resource formed
the basis of the area’s prosperity up to the middle of the 20th
century, a prosperity that is reflected in the fine architecture of the
town of Hallstatt.
