An unforgettable holiday in the Salzkammergut Lake District.
A charming region full of beauty just waiting to be discovered.
The Salzkammergut is a picturesque landscape mosaic made up of soft rolling hill, wide bands of mixed forest, blooming mountain pastures, distinctive peaks and the ever-present white blanket of the Dachstein glacier. A total of 76 lakes, some small, secluded and mysterious, some large and lively, are located in the region. The small villages nestled neatly in the tucks of the hills and on the shores of the lakes are unique, each having its very own charm and character. The Salzkammergut is the ideal place for a perfect summer holiday.
Unforgettable excursions in the region.
In Hallstatt in the heart of the World Heritage Site in the Inner Salzkammergut the houses stand closely side-by-side and appear to be stuck onto the rock face that slides mercilessly into the lake. At the Café Zauner in Bad Ischl everything seems to remind you of the imperial days of the past and in St. Wolfgang as the cog railway chugs its way up the Schafberg mountain you can almost see and hear the von Trapp children.
Discovery tours of the Salzkammergut Lake District.
The surrounding Salzkammergut region is ideal for excursions and trips into the countryside, for boat rides on nostalgic steamers and exploring the underground world of the salt mines. Traditional craft centres such as the Gmunder Pottery make shopping for authentic presents easy and of course the many cultural events make the Salzkammergut Lake District well worth a visit at any time of year.
