Schärding

Our Recommendation

Schärding

Town of the Guilds

»Scardigna« was first mentioned in documents in 804; in the course of the 9th and 10th centuries, Schärding became the centre of the county of Vornbach-Neuburg. The Counts of Andech followed in 1160 and the Bavarian Wittelsbachs in 1248.

Schärding Visit City

Feldkirch

Our Recommendation

Feldkirch

Jesters, Fine Wines and the Magic of History

The first settlements were established in the Bronze Age; the German name »Feldkirch« was for the first time mentioned in an inventory of possessions of 842: »Ecclesia sancti Petri ad Campos id est Feldkircha – St. Peter bei den Feldern church, that’s Feldkirch«.

Feldkirch Visit City

Bad Ischl

Our Recommendation

Bad Ischl

The Emperor’s Great Love

There are many places in Austria where you can still feel the imperial atmosphere. But nowhere else can this special time in Austrian history be better felt than here, in the middle of the salzkammergut region.

The hapsburg family selected Bad Ischl to spend their summers and to find peace and quiet away from their duties at court.
