‘World Heritage View’ on Hallstatt’s Salzberg
A top tip for a day out!
Those looking for a bit of excitement and want to enjoy the breath-taking Alpine panorama of the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut, then the impressive viewing platform on the Salzberg is just right. The so called ‘World Heritage Skywalk’ hovers 350 meters above the roofs of Hallstatt and offers a unique panoramic view over Lake Hallstatt and the impressive mountain scenery.
The new visitor attraction is located directly below the former defence tower on the Hallstatt Salzberg (salt mountain). Named after the first Habsburg Rudolf I, the Rudolfsturm (Rudolf tower) was built between 1282 to 1284 by his son Duke Albert I of Austria as a defence tower to protect the mines and buildings of Hallstatt salt mines.
Today the Rudolfsturm houses a restaurant / cafe with a panoramic terrace which serves hearty local delicacies as well as a good cup of coffee and traditional pastries or a slice of cake. It is just a 2 minutes’ walk from the top station of the Hallstatt cable car!
