Location description from owner

The Upper Austria region

The Salzkammergut is Austria´s Lake District, and is one of the most beautiful areas of Austria. The name derives from its long association with salt production, and this is reflected in many of the towns and tourist attractions in the area. The special beauty of the area, and how man has integrated into the landscape, was recognised by the Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut area being designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997.A visit to Hallstatt itself is a must. From its old buildings dating back hundreds of years, perched on precipitous slopes in seemingly impossible locations, to the Bronze Age burial site, it cannot fail to impress and delight the visitor. Take a boat trip round the Hallstättersee (Lake Hallstatt), amongst the mountains that surround it. Other attractions in the same area include the Ice Caves, Krippenstein (with its almost lunar landscape), and the Five Fingers, a viewing platform with stunning views over Lake Hallstatt and far beyond.The Wolfgangsee (Lake Wolfgang) is just a short car or bus ride away from Bad Ischl. In the summer, spend a day relaxing on a boat visiting the quaint towns of St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen and Strobl, all with their own characters. Take a trip up the Schafberg mountain from St. Wolfgang by rack railway, the steepest in Austria, in operation since 1893, and enjoy a meal at the Hotel Schafbergspitze, Austria´s oldest mountain inn. On certain days, you can take a moonlight ride, and even spend a night on the mountain! You can visit the Mozart museum in St. Gilgen, and take coffee and cakes in the house where his mother lived. Take a cablecar up the Zwölferhorn to enjoy stunning views of the area, and make sure you have time to walk the Pillstein scenic round route. In St. Wolfgang, the White Horse Inn is world famous as the setting for the opera of the same name. Strobl is an ideal place to just sit and watch the world go by over a coffee (or something stronger) on the edge of the lake. If you just want to relax, you can enjoy water sports on the lake, or just swim. In the winter, each town has its advent market, where you can buy christmas gifts and decorations of every type, and enjoy delicious snacks such as soup in a bread basket!For those preferring something more active, there are plenty of other activities such as cycling on the area´s extensive network of cycle routes, walking in the summer for all abilities, and fabulous skiing in the winter, at Postalm (particularly suitable for beginner-intermediate skiiers), Dachstein West (Upper Austria's largest ski region, for all levels), and Krippenstein (for freestyle skiing as well as intermediate-advanced). There is a free ski bus from the railway station, within five minutes walk of the apartment.Or why not consider a day trip to somewhere further afield, such as historic Salzburg, Linz, Graz or Berchtesgaden? If you have time, take a boat trip along the Danube, or visit the Czech Republic.There are frequently local festivals, all of them involving eating, drinking, and music in some form or another! Make sure to try the local delicacies on offer.Whatever your idea of a holiday, you cannot fail to find it in this corner of Austria!

Bad Ischl

Bad Ischl lies nestled in the heart of the Salzkammergut, at the confluence of the rivers Traun and Ischl. It is a spa town, and because of its climate, was chosen as the ideal spot for the summer retreat of the Kaiser whose former home can be visited today. The Euro Therme spa itself is in the centre of town, where you can swim, have a beauty therapy, or just relax.In the summer, you can take a cablecar to the top of Ischl´s own mountain, the Katrin, or visit the outdoor swimming pool in a park-like setting. Enjoy a drink or two at one of the pavement cafes, and ensure that you try some of the delicious cakes (Bad Ischl is home to one of Austria´s most well known patisserie and coffee houses, Zauners). Why not try one of the many affordably-priced restaurants around the town itself, perhaps by the river? No need to drive back to the apartment, they are all within easy walking distance!There are many well-signposted walks around the town and within the local countryside, and it doesn´t take more than a few minutes to leave the town behind you. Hop on a bus or train for walks that are further afield – public transport is very reasonably priced in Austria.In the winter, there is excellent skiing at Dachstein West (Upper Austria’s largest ski area), or at Postalm (Europe’s second largest high mountain plateau). Both resorts are suitable for all ages and abilities. Cross-country skiing is also very popular in the area, particularly at Rettenbachalm, on the outskirts of Bad Ischl, and at Gosau, where there are approximately 20km of prepared tracks in a beautiful valley setting particularly suitable for beginners. The owners of the apartment can provide more information on request. And of course there are the advent markets, particularly round Lake Wolfgang where can enjoy a day travelling between them by boat. In Bad Ischl itself, the thermal spa is open all year, and it is possible to swim outside amid the snow! Some walking is still possible as there are cleared paths, and the local tourist office can provide further information.And finally, make sure to visit the local market on Friday mornings, and try some of the local produce – still very much a way of life for the people of Bad Ischl who always like to look their best on market day and often wear their traditional clothes.
