Journey to Ausseerland-Salzkammergut

Ausseerland is located in the heart of Austria and is surrounded by an impressive mountain world. Due to mountain giants like the Dachstein, Grimming and the Tote Gebirge, it is somewhat secluded and wonderfully quiet. Ausseerland as the Styrian Salzkammergut borders directly to Upper Austria. Thanks to its remoteness, customs have been preserved here for centuries. In the past as well as today, the Ausseerland impresses with a special magic. And it is precisely for this reason that nature lovers seek their vacation happiness here.
