Since December of 1997 the region of Hallstatt - Dachstein / Salzkammergut has been honored with a position on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The region enjoys this recognition along side other Austrian contributions including the imperial palace of Schönbrunn and the historic city of Salzburg.
The Hallstatt region is comprised of a multifaceted natural landscape which includes both historic and cultural dimensions. With its unique network of caves and variety of flora and fauna, the region is considered a complex phenomenon. It is not only a cultural heritage site but also has the distinction of being a natural heritage location as well. With this international honor the Hallstatt region finds itself in an exclusive circle among UNESCO World Heritage sites. Ayers Rock in Australia and the Philippine Islands are the only other UNESCO sites in addition to the Hallstatt Region in which the aspects of both nature and culture so are uniquely combined.

Belle composition hivernale. Ce petit village a l'air bien sympathique sous son manteau blanc.
Merci pour le partage.

Mooi landschap. Het is blijkbaar wel al goed aan het dooien. Ik vraag me af waar de straatjes in het dorp liggen. Niet om met de auto door te rijden..

I really love it. I love the snow. I look at your image and I feel cold. too bad you could not include the very tip of the mountain in the backgroud, but this is a small point.
