The well-known Dachstein massif is situated southeast of Salzburg. The highest peak in these wild mountains, the Hohe Dachstein, reaches 2995 metres and is the second highest peak in the Northern Limestone Alps. The area counts three glaciers as well. From the many huts you will be able to explore this impressive karst landscape in any direction you want.
The area is popular with walkers and climbers alike. Good options for the experienced hiker are the Gosaukamm ("Salzburg Dolomites") or a multi-day tour from Ramsau through the Dachstein massif proper.
