Bad Ischl in the Salzkammergut


Bad Ischl – the imperial city – offers not only romance à la Sissi and Emperor Franz Josef but also tempting shopping possibilities, gastronomy and possibilities for unique excursions into the majestic Salzkammergut with its countless crystal clear lakes, its impressive mountain region and cosy cities. Guests who will visit the spa do not only experience a breath taking nature but also many cultural events, crowned by the International Choir Competition and Festival Bad Ischl.
