Awaiting visitors to the east of Salzburg City is the Salzkammergut.
The unique charm of this region was once treasured by the Austrian emperors and nobility, who came here for their summer escapes. The picturesque lakes – the Fuschlsee, Mondsee, Attersee, Wolfgangsee and Hintersee – with their clean water and idyllic towns, are wonderful excursion destinations.
Especially worth a visit: the Imperial Town of Bad Ischl, St. Gilgen, Strobl and beautifully situated Gmunden in Upper Austria. Also lakes to the north of Salzburg City promise all kinds of fun in and around the water.
