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.

Lienz

Our Recommendation

Lienz

A Little Bit of Italy between Drau and Isel

A lively settlement since the Bronze Age in the valley floor between the Drau and Isel rivers. Excavations of the Roman town of Aguntum (A.D. 50–450).

The original settlement was expanded by the Counts of Gorizia in the 11th and 12th centuries who built, among others, Bruck Castle and the Carmelite monastery.

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.

Bludenz

Our Recommendation

Bludenz

Marktplatz und Begegnungsraum fünf alpiner Talschaften

Die Ortschaft Bludenz selbst wurde erstmals im Jahre 830 im sogenannten „Churrätischen Reichsurbar“ unter den nebeneinander verwendeten Namensversionen „Pludono“ und „Pluteno“ urkundlich genannt.

1265 erfolgte dann die offizielle Gründung der Stadt Bludenz durch die Werdenberger, das Stadtrecht verlieh Hugo I. von Werdenberg 1274.
