Walk on Austrian historical paths
Located on the northern edge of the Alps, and nestled between numerous lakes lies the Salzkammergut. Also known as the ‘tenth state of Austria’, it radiates charm. The Salzkammergut has kept up traditions until the present day and these are still active throughout the year. So keep your eyes peeled while hiking in the Salzkammergut region. Maybe you will spy an ‘Ausseer Trommelweib’ (special clothing worn during carnival) or the traditional regional clothing. The magic of the Royal history still blows over the region. It’s almost as if Emperor Franz Josef and Sisi still live in one of the villas.
