A trip to Bad Ischl

The former emperor of Austria already knew that the Salzkammergut is a very beautiful place. Together with his wife Sissi, he spent many summers in the Kaiservilla in Bad Ischl. If you take a trip to Bad Ischl, you might think that the Danube monarchy never ceased to exist. A small footbridge leads across the Ischl into the Kaiserpark and soon you are standing in front of the beautiful Kaiservilla. A guided tour of the Kaiservilla will provide you with interesting insights into the imperial vacation residence.

Lake Kingdom Salzkammergut

There are numerous bathing beaches on the shore of the lake

About 20 minutes by car from the city of Salzburg, lies the Fuschlsee. There are numerous bathing beaches on the shore of the lake. A jump into the crystal clear water is a welcome cooling in the hot summer months and pure fun for children! On the same road that leads to the Fuschlsee, we continue to the Wolfgangsee. Even as you approach, a unique view of the lake opens up to you – more beautiful than on any postcard. From there it is not far to the Mondsee. All three lakes inspire with drinking water quality and a magnificent panorama.
