The Ausseerland in the Salzkammergut, Austria

Exciting all year round: holiday in the Ausseerland

The Ausseerland, a particularly charming holiday region in the Salzkammergut, was deservedly dubbed “textbook scenery”. With its great number of lakes and mountains, the Ausseerland in the northwest of the Austrian province of Styria not only excites with its scenic diversity, but also with its cultural treasures and lovingly cultivated traditions such as the Daffodil Festival, the carnival and the colourful traditional costumes.

Popular for centuries: holiday in the Ausseerland

In bygone days, the Austrian emperor and his court were drawn from Vienna to Bad Ischl in summer. The artists and intellectuals, however, preferred the Ausseerland in the Salzkammergut. Johannes Brahms, Jakob Wassermann and Friedrich Torberg spent their holiday in the Ausseerland. The Ausseerland later became an all-year holiday region in the Salzkammergut. Today, the holiday programme for all ages features winter and summer sports, cultural events, beautiful destinations at the Dachstein/Salzkammergut UNESCO World Heritage Site and pristine relaxation at the modern Grimming spa in Bad Mitterndorf.
