Description: The natural landscape of Salzkammergut has seen human activity since prehistoric times. The salt deposits were exploited as early as the 2nd millennium B.C. and formed the basis of the area’s prosperity up until the middle of the 20th century. This affluence has been mirrored within Hallstatt’s fine architecture. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
