From the second half of the 19th century, Viennese high society spent their summers on the picturesque lakes of the Salzkammergut. One emulated the emperor who resided in Bad Ischl with his wife and court. Summering in the Salzkammergut meant: socialising, joie de vivre and relaxation on the lakes. This epoch’s charm is still palpable today.
Much has remained the same: the exhilarating events, the romantic Jugendstil villas as well as the traditional cafés and restaurants. Nowadays also with a vast selection of sports activities: sailing, surfing, skiing, paragliding, ski touring, tennis, etc.
Quickly accessible from Salzburg: Lake Fuschl with its prestigious hotel, Lake Wolfgang with its “Weißes Rössl” and Zwölferhorn cable car and the Mondsee and Attersee sailing Eldorado. The setting is a true paradise dappled with lakes amidst impressive mountains and beautiful countryside.
