Time pressure and excessive speed are counterproductive! Furthermore, preparation is everything! Therefore, below we have summarised for you the most important tips for safe movement in the mountains of the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut. Tips ranging from "what do I do when I'm in distress on the mountain" to "how do I behave properly with grazing livestock on pastures".
