The Upper Austria/Salzkammergut region
The name of our region is "Salzkammergut". It is a resort area located in Austria. It stretches from the City of Salzburg eastwards along the Austrian Alpine Foreland and the Northern Alps to the peaks of the Dachstein Mountains. The main river of the region is the Traun, a right tributary of the Danube. The name Salzkammergut literally means "Estate of the Salt Chamber" and derives from the Imperial Salt Chamber, the authority charged with running the precious salt mines of the former Habsburg Monarchy.
With its numerous lakes and mountains, the Salzkammergut offers many opportunities to take part in water sports, bathing, hiking, cycling, skiing, caving and golf as well as relaxing around lakes such as the Traunsee, Attersee, Mondsee, Grundlsee or Toplitzsee. Typical Salzkammergut culinary specialities include dishes such as Kaiserschmarrn (cut-up and sugared pancake with raisins), Krapfen (similar to doughnuts) or Lebkuchen (gingerbread).
Parts of the region around Hallstatt were listed as a World Heritage Site, with the description: "Human activity in the magnificent natural landscape of the Salzkammergut began in prehistoric times, with the salt deposits being exploited as early as the 2nd millennium B.C. This resource formed the basis of the area's prosperity up to the middle of the 20th century, a prosperity that is reflected in the fine architecture of the town of Hallstatt." The World Heritage Site includes the towns Hallstatt, Obertraun, Gosau and Bad Goisern.
Today the Salzkammergut tourism region comprises 52 municipalities, which are part of three Austrian federal states: Upper Austria (Oberösterreich), located in the southern Gmunden and Vöcklabruck districts, Styria with mainly the area around Lake Altaussee (Ausseerland-Region) and the state of Salzburg within the Salzburg District of Flachgau.
Gmunden am Traunsee
The Salzkammergut area is predominantly a tourist area and has been so for over a century. Emperor Franz Joseph I used to spend his summer holidays in Bad Ischl in the Kaiservilla, from which he governed his empire in the warmer months.
Recreational facilities include swimming and water sports at the many lakes, mountaineering, cycling and horse riding holidays, winter sports and many cultural events. The area owes its reputation as a recreational area not only to its landscape and climate but also to its many spa.
