Walk along Austria’s historic traces

The Salzkammergut region is located at the northern edge of the Alps and nestling between numerous lakes. It is also called the ‚tenth Austrian state’ and exudes a very unique charm. Its customs and traditions were retained to this day and are practiced all year round. Hence keep your eyes peeled during your hiking tour in the Salzkammergut region. Maybe you will spot an ‚Ausseer Drum Woman’ or a typical traditional outfit of the region. The magic of the time of the monarchy is still present in the region. It nearly feels as if Emperor Josef and his wife Sisi are still residing in one of the villas.
