Region: Attersee, Salzkammergut, Austria.
Location: Nussdorf am Attersee and surroundings.
Actually, it is a half-day excursion that could take 4 to 5 hours walking down. The best starting point is the center of Nussdorf am Attersee and you have to follow the road in the direction ‘Oberwang’. As you leave Nussdorf on this road you have to take case and avoid the branching to Westvanderweg. On the left, you will have beautiful landscapes on the lake (photo 1) and don’t forget to turn right to Limberg when is the case (photo 2). On your right hand you should have almost permanently the green grass and alpine flora of the region (photo 3). Limberg is a very small but picturesque village with less than twenty houses (photo 4) and don’t cross in hurry, because some houses have a beautiful architecture and they deserve a “coffee break” of 15-20 minutes (take your own coffee, there is no restaurant here). Anyway, it will take for no more than 60 minutes from Nussdorf to Limberg, even if you are not trained or you like to stop many times. Ten to fifteen minutes from Limberg you will reach Dachsteinblick and when you can see clearly the Schaffberg as in photo 5, you’re there. Now you can focus on the lake (photo 6) and of course, on the Dachstein glacier (photo 7). I hope you are lucky, because the weather is very important to see the details. I tried three times consecutively till I obtained the last photo.
There is a small restaurant there. The bier is like everywhere in Austria, but don’t forget to ask the owner about ‘schinkenbrot’ and cookies with ‘marille’.
Well, you can return on the same road, but in my opinion is boring. You can use another way, with beautiful views on the northern Attersee (photo 8). Continue using a narrow path through the forest that finally (after 1 to 1.5 hours) will lead you to the Pfarrer Salletl (you may consider a half to one hour for this silent and nice place) and Wildholzweg. From here you will reach the starting point in no more than 15 minutes.
Wildholzweg in its turn is very interesting (opened in 2009), but about this, maybe another time.
