Happiness is everywhere in the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut: it can be explored on foot, awaits you in beautiful places and sometimes quite unexpectedly as a unique natural spectacle. A mass of water plunges over the edge of a 90m high gorge and rushes roaringly and thunderously over three levels into the depths. For both hosts and guests, the ‘Glücksplatz’ (place of happiness), at the foot of the mighty waterfall, is one amongst one of the most beautiful energetic places in the UNESCO World Heritage Dachstein Salzkammergut and a distinctive piece of Hallstatt nature.
Our tip: For those who wish to discover the ~Glücksplatz’ Waldbachstrub in Hallstatt, we recommend a tour of about three hours through the wild and romantic Echerntal. The most beautiful waterfall in the holiday region of Dachstein Salzkammergut can be reached by foot, from the centre of Hallstatt, in about 1.5 hours. And for those who want to explore more, we recommend a trip to the Glacier Garden, about 30 minutes away from the waterfall. Whether a simple trip to the Hallstatt waterfall or a long hike through the imposing Echerntal, we wish you a happy holiday and unforgettable moments of happiness in the Salzkammergut.
