This circular hiking trail around the Dietrichskogel "takes" you on a fascinating journey through time from the origins of the salt mine to the present day of Ausseerland.21 signposted stations point to ancient tunnels, the mule tracks of the Romans or a strange castle ruin. This easily walkable and well signposted route is not only "seasoned" with salt, but with many a surprise. After four kilometers and a leisurely climb of 300 meters in altitude, you reach its highest point - in the quiet, unspoiled mountain landscape at the foot of the Sandling massif. Finally, on the equally long but in places somewhat steeper descent path lies - as the highlight of the hike - the show mine.The hike on the Via Salis takes about three hours.
The three somewhat more difficult passages are easily bypassed on the forest road.

EquipmentProper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended!
