Welcome to the geographic centre of Austria. The crystal clear Grundlsee, Toplitzsee, Kammersee and Altaussee lakes are enticing. The "Trachteninsel" ("traditional costume island") presents itself festively with outlets in Altaussee, Bad Aussee and Grundlsee. Every year, people flock from all over Europe to visit the Narzissenfest (Narcissi Flower Festival).
But there is much more to the Salzkammergut. In the south, it nuzzles the almost 3000 metre high Dachstein. The peaks of the Totes Gebirge (Dead Mountain range) are proudly enthroned in the north. Hikes, walks and mountain bike rides, all in the middle of wildly romantic countryside.
A tip: the "Via Artis" leads you on the trail of famous artists who spent their summer holidays here.
The Ausseerland-Salzkammergut region is known as the "Vital Region" because of its climate, salt and moor mud.
In Bad Mitterndorf, you can relax wonderfully in the Grimming Thermal Spa. In the winter, the cross-country skiing trails go directly past and the new cable car, which is the longest in Styria, takes you to the Tauplitzalm.
Just around the corner is the largest ski flying jump in the world, the Kulm.
