Three spectacular highlights in one sightseeing tour: one of the most spectacular viewing platforms in Austria, “5 Fingers”, the picturesque Austrian Lake District and the extraordinary village “Hallstatt” at Lake Hallstättersee. The Salzkammergut, the Austrian Lake District Gentle hills and high mountains, rugged rocks, mountain lakes and picturesque villages.
On the way to 5 Fingers and Hallstatt we go through the famous “Salzkammergut” the Austrian Lake District passing by also Hotel Schloss Fushl and the impressive office of Red Bull. Our first photo stop is high over Lake Wolfgang and the Mozart village St. Gilgen. Views across Lake Wolfgang with Mount Schafberg and St.Wolfgang the operetta village, we pass the spa town of Bad Ischl then reach the Lake Hallstattersee.
This mountain top vantage point at 2100m is shaped like a hand with 5 separate fingers, each finger is a viewing platform. Only 20 to 30 minutes easy hiking one way from the top station of the cable car are necessary for an unforgettable experience. (In winter you need to have sturdy snow boots. With lots of snow special equipment can be rented at the cable car station.)
Finally, we will reach the extraordinary village Hallstatt by its lake. It is simply amazing how the houses were built between the mountains and the lake. 7000 years of salt mining and the findings of eminent historic import even gave a scientific epoch its name: The “Hallstatt period” with the “Hallstatt Culture”. The UNESCO Cultural Heritage Committee wrote: “… nature of extraordinary beauty added to scientific import …” Together with the Dachstein region Hallstatt was declared an UNESCO Heritage site. Some guests say it is the most extraordinary lakeside village in the world
