In winter the valley is transformed into a wonderful ski area (Dachstein-West) - one of Austria's best kept secrets.
In other seasons, it's a walkers (and cyclists) paradise. And there's lots to do. Try rafting or rock-climbing, lake swimming or spa treatments! Explore the Ice cave or cog railway to the top of a mountain for stunning views.
It's close to Salzburg, and in the midst of the lakes, made famous by the great film, The Sound Of Music'. You have to come and visit once, at least!
