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.
For more than 175 years, Bad ischl has been a health resort for problems of the respiratory system, heart/circulation and the locomotor system. The woods nearby, the rustic pastures and the mountain tops have since the turn of the century been popular destinations for extended walks.
Coffee and cake at the famous Zauner café or an evening with a léhar operetta in the town’s theatre are a »must« here.
