Love sunday

A real LIEBSTATTHERZ helps against any kind of pain - that's why it was invented in Gmunden, centuries ago.

In 1641, the Bishop of Passau, who was responsible for Gmunden at the time, established a custom for the spa town on Lake Traunsee.

He instructed the city pastor to invite the poor of the city to a common meal on the fourth Sunday of Lent and to serve it himself. Historically, it was the affirmation of the so-called "Corpus Christi Fraternity."

Members of this brotherhood were wealthy and influential citizens who in this way paid their love to the poor. This is how Mid-Lent Sunday got its beautiful name.

This custom has survived in modified form to this day.


The tradition of curling

The locals in the Inner Salzkammergut take curling very seriously and it fills them with infinite pride to be considered a good marksman on the mirror-smooth curling rink.

During the winter months, locals gather with their ice stocks in the afternoons on the ice rinks, which are carefully maintained throughout the winter to ensure the thickest and smoothest ice surface possible. The turned curling stone is made of maple or pear wood and delights young and old on some winter days.

Ebenseer cribs

Traunsee-Almtal region

Christmas cribs that are unique in two ways can be admired in the market town of Ebensee  in the Austrian Salzkammergut.

continue reading

On the one hand, they are enormous nativity scenes modelled on their own surroundings around Lake Traunsee, and on the other hand, they can be found in many private homes and can also be viewed there.
Information on the addresses of the private cribs (including visiting times), including a crib-map, is available from the Ebensee tourist office. This year, the Ebensee Museum has made a particularly extensive exhibition of nativity scenes possible.


The Glöcklerlauf is a tradition that is always upheld by the locals. A miracle, because the caps are supposed to bring good luck in the coming year and protect against natural events.

By ringing the bells, the "bell ringer" drives the evil spirits out of the valleys, forests and their houses. It is said that the more men take part in this procession, the better luck the neighborhood can expect in the coming year.

continue reading

The bell-ringer caps are all hand-made and painstakingly crafted by their wearers. The cap consists of a wooden frame with thin rods, which are covered with black construction paper. Motifs are either cut out or punched out of a cover and pasted behind with colored paper.

The parades will take place on the evening of January 5, 2022. White figures with jingling belts and splendid colored light caps on their heads run past numerous onlookers. At 8:00 p.m. all Glöckler groups will arrive at the Goiserer market square.


Underwater crib

Underwater crib For the first time on the Attersee, the "first underwater crib" at the "Dixi diving entry point" is sunk and baptized! In 2019 the board of the diving competence center had the idea for the first underwater crèche in Europe. This year divers should experience the new winter attraction for the first time. “The underwater crib can be viewed from December 6, 2021 in Weyregg am Attersee at the Dixi - Pfahlbauhaus diving station. A particular challenge in the implementation was the reinterpretation of the nativity scene under water and the choice of material

Almabtrieb in Gosau am Dachstein

Back from the summer freshness

After a long summer in the alpine pastures, the farmers are sure to return their horses and cows to the valley without accidents. This gratitude is celebrated every year at the traditional Almabtrieb, the end of the animal summer freshness.
This year the Almabtrieb will take place on 18 September 2021 at 1 pm on the Plankensteinalm and in the valley in the Moosalm. With musical entertainment and alpine pastures we welcome you to a cosy day in Gosau am Dachstein.

All further information can be found on our website at: ds. reisen/xyvXc

Almabtrieb on the Mayerlehenhütte

From 11:00 a. m. the music starts.
The cows are dressed up and decorated, then the march is in the valley.

ONLY in rainy weather.
The date of an alpine trip depends on the food on the alpine pasture, the weather and the rural life rhythm and can therefore be changed at short notice.

From the parking lot Lämmerbach in Hintersee you walk about 3/4 – 1 hour a well-signposted path to the Mayerlehenhütte on the Gruberalm. Follow the path no. 57.

"Traktoria" & autumn enjoyment at the Wolfgangsee

When the leaves turn into brightly coloured foliage in autumn, and when the emerald-green Wolfgangsee becomes the mirror of a dreamlike landscape – then autumn moves over the country. For many, autumn is the most beautiful time of year. Everything calms down, the temperature drops, the trees adorn themselves with a colorful dress. At Lake Wolfgangsee there is another special feature: the region is fog-free!

Hikes around the lake and to the surrounding alpine pastures offer great pleasure and revive body, mind and soul.

The alpine huts, snack stations and restaurants around Lake Wolfgang offer special culinary delights until the end of October. Traditional dishes from the regional cuisine are the focus.

The version of the mystery play, which was put into dialect by Franz Löser and approved by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, has been performed for 99 years on the Mondsee Frelichtbühne in Karlsgarten.

He knows how to enjoy his wealth, almost every day he fights and celebrates with his supposed friends. But one day, suddenly and without warning, death comes up to him and asks him to come along. . .

Four days of cultural revitalization with a fun factor


The church car park will be transformed into an event area with a large stage and approx. 700 – 1000 seats for four days. “Our prevention concept has proven itself very well in the events we were able to hold last year. With assigned seats, we can keep the distance between the groups of visitors, manage the flow of visitors, carry out contact tracements, comply with hygiene regulations, etc”, says the head of the Cultural Office. Another advantage is that you are very flexible at this outdoor event. This allows the distances between the seats and rows to be varied. “The Cultural Committee and the Cultural Department have done everything possible to offer our Laakir residents and guests a great cultural alternative with great artists such as Tricky Niki, Pizzera & Jaus etc. in summer and to live up to the credo of our city – culture through diversity”, says Regina Hirschmann, Chairwoman of the Cultural Committee.

Once across a lake

Surrounded by nature, green and harmony. This is exactly how you could describe a boat trip across the idyllic Fuschlsee. The wooden barge, which is called “Fuschlerin” is driven quietly by an electric motor and offers space for up to 20 people. Those who enjoy the region on a sunny day, well protected under the barges roof, know what the summer retreat feels like and are looking forward to a dive into the Fuschlsee. By the way, the “Fuschlerin” leaves from the legendary Hotel Ebner's-Waldhof.

What the gondolas are for Venice, the flat-bottomed boats are for the Salzkammergut. Once, valuable salt was shipped to the cities across lakes and rivers.

A history lesson

How do you learn more about a UNESCO World Heritage Site? During a "Statt-Tour" through Hallstatt. Starting at the tourist office in the centre of the village you can experience and hike through living history on Saturday and Monday. Something you won't find on the Internet. Whether on land or water, at night or under a full moon, from far away or very close by - these alternative guided tours offer completely new impressions of the picturesque Hallstatt. This not only ensures a greater adventure and a more wide-ranging experience than most day visitors have but also the pictures taken during the tour will stand out from the crowd.

Pilgrim magnet

St. Wolfgang was once one of the four most important pilgrimage sites in Europe. The values have shifted but the hype remains. Modern pilgrims walk from Mondsee Abbey to the Schafling and Falkenstein to the famous pilgrimage site at the lake, like Saint Wolfgang did in the past. The oldest pilgrimage path in Europe offers fantastic views on the blue-green lake. When arriving at the place of pilgrimage one should definitely – and perhaps even a little humbly – take a look at the church with its two altars: Michales Pacher’s winged altar from 1481 and Thomas Schwanthaler’s late gothic work from the 17th century.

Bathing in a forest

The rustling of the leaves in the wind, the smell of fresh forest soil, the taste of wild strawberries. Much of what we have lost through an urban environment and lifestyle is gaining importance again. The conscious perception of our natural environment is also the focus of Fritz Wolf's forest pedagogy. In his WALDNESS® Programme you experience the forest in an intuitive and authentic way again involving all sense. The deceleration happens all by itself during the “forest bathing”. However, knowledge is not neglected either: in important teaching units awareness is raised for the preservation of nature and the responsible use of our resources in emphasised.
