Gmunden

Our Recommendation

Gmunden

At the Lake Source of the River Traun

A lively town with southern charm at the shores of lake traunsee, surrounded by mountains – that is the town of ceramics, Gmunden.

Not a big town, but no sleepy small village either. A town with culture and atmosphere, romantic and lively. A place with charm, a place of contrasts, a place of boisterous hours and quiet moments. Gmunden invites you to stroll, to shop or simply enjoy.

Steyr

Our Recommendation

Steyr

1000 Years of Romanticism

Around 980 the Ottakar margraves in Styria built today’s Lamberg Castle. The settlement around the castle and the parish church are first mentioned in official documents in 985. In 1186, the town fell into the ownership of the Babenbergers.

Radstadt

Our Recommendation

Radstadt

A Fine Old Town in the Mountains

»Rastat« was first mentioned in documents in 1074. Due to its strategically important location on the old Roman road from Aquileia over the Radstadt Tauern to Juvavum (Salzburg), Radstadt received town rights under Archbishop Rudolf von Hohenegg in 1289.

Judenburg

Our Recommendation

Judenburg

Venetian Charm and Styrian Merchants

The former merchants’ settlement was an important trade centre between venice and vienna. The town preserved the Mediterranean charm from the old days of venetian traders.

Tradition and modernity form a harmonious symbiosis here and folklore finds ample space to unfold – on the farmers’ market, at folk music mornings in rustic inns or at the »Murtaler Autumn festival«.
