Dachstein 5 Fingers Viewing Platform
Nothing for weak nerves! The 5fingers viewing platform offers adrenaline kicks at the highest level. Probably the most spectacular viewing platform in the Alps protrudes like a hand into an abyss over 400 meters deep. The five different bridges, each four by one meter, provide spectacular insights and views.The “5fingers” are illuminated until midnight and can also be seen from afar at night. On the way to the 5fingers you will find information on fauna, flora and the geology on the Dachstein Krippenstein on display boards.
Did you know that the city of Hallstatt was the inspiration for the Disney film Frozen? Hallstatt is absolutely beautiful and a must-see. Enjoy the stroll through the historic Austrian city in between Alpine lake land. Don’t forget to stop for some freshly served Kaiserschmarrn – Austria’s local pancake specialty.
In Hallstatt’s high valley lies that famous burial ground, that of an entire era gave the name “Hallstatt Culture”. The finds, which are exhibited in the museum in the center of the world heritage site, testify to exquisite luxury and elitist understanding of art, but also to worldwide trade relations. On a unique journey through time, historical events at various stations are prepared in an interesting and informative way, with video animations, holographic representations and three-dimensional presentations also being used. A visit to the Hallstatt Museum in the Dachstein Salzkammergut holiday region is definitely an experience for the whole family.
