The Salzkammergut is a great place for... culture!
Cultural highlights & exciting excursion destinations
Not only in terms of nature has the Salzkammergut absolute highlights to offer - the Salzkammergut also shows its best side when it comes to culture: whether with the nomination of the once imperial summer resort town of Bad Ischl as European Capital of Culture 2024 or with numerous other cultural delicacies from the World Heritage site of Hallstatt to the Mozart city of Salzburg.
Imperial and royal summer retreat - cultural and artistic!
Even if Bad Ischl is not officially the "European Capital of Culture" until 2024, the other towns in the Salzkammergut-Dachstein & Ausseerland are not stingy with their cultural attractions: the spa and imperial town of Bad Ischl with its museums, parks and cafés, and the picturesque-authentic Bad Goisern with its traditional handicraft businesses and precious gems offer much worth seeing in the immediate neighbourhood.
UNESCO World Heritage Site Hallstatt - Superlative Excursion Destination
An excursion-must for everyone who spends their holiday in Bad Goisern: the world-famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hallstatt! It is not for nothing that this picturesque place on the western shore of Lake Hallstatt was recreated 1:1 in China. And after all, a separate historical era is named after this place where people lived and mined the "white gold" more than 7,000 years ago! A special experience even in bad weather: dive into the depths of the Hallstatt Salt Worlds - and experience the oldest salt mine in the world.
One heart and one soul: Salzburg & the Salzkammergut
The city of Salzburg and the lake district are only a stone's throw away from Bad Goisern and always worth a trip. A stroll through the Mirabell Gardens and Getreidegasse, a detour with the kids to the Toy Museum or the Hellbrunn Water Games - there is something for everyone! And on the way back, Lake Wolfgang, Lake Mondsee or Lake Fuschl invite you to cool off and enjoy a coffee by the lake.
