The Upper Austria/Salzkammergut region
The Salzkammergut is a popular choice in summer and winter. With major ski resorts, hiking trails and lakes, there is something for everyone. The local area has salt mines (very important in the history of the region - "salz" being German for "salt", this region was a major exporter of salt to around the world in the 16th, 17th and 18th century).
St. Wolfgang, Hallstatt, Fuschl, Bad Ischl and Salzburg are just a few towns located nearby. Daytrips to all of the above are highly recommended - perhaps catch a train to Hallstatt and get the boat across the lake, explore the saltmines and the beautiful waterfalls, followed by coffee and cake in the cafe on the lakefront.
In short; it's a beautiful area, with plenty to do!
Bad Goisern is a village with many shops, bars and small attractions. Like many Austrian villages, the sense of community is apparent, and the locals are very friendly and welcoming.There are various festivals held through out the year. There are several hotel restaurants,cafes and take aways and even an ice cream restaurant! Try a "germknodel" - a large dumpling filled with plum jam - simply delicious! Washed down with the local beer, it's a real treat.
The local train station(two minutes drive,or 20 mins walk) links to major cities: Salzburg, Vienna and Linz and the smaller towns such as Hallstatt and Bad Ischl. Buses are frequent, cheap and are the perfect way to explore the area. All drivers and staff speak some degree of English.
