The essence of nature

They smell, they tingle, they surprise, they enchant…in short they taste uniquely just like the region – the fine distillates of the award-winning distillery Primushäusl. Thirty fine brandies are waiting to be tasted and if you have had enough of them, you can try the homemade gin, whisky or rum.

Original Alpine Couture

The only place in Austria where silk fabrics for Dirndl & Co. are still hand printed can be found in Ausseerland. On the mostly pure silk twill wood or metal models are used to create colourful designs that cannot be found anywhere else. The colours of the season meet traditional patterns and vice versa. A must for trendsetters and costume enthusiasts.

A fishy delight from Fuschlsee

The finely smoked char, brown and salmon trout from the Fuschlsee are widely known and are always worth a visit. Those who don't dine in the elegant restaurant of Schloss Fuschl can try the daily fresh fish directly at the shore in the traditional Schloss-Fischerei. The famous smoked delicacies can also be bought there - packed in travel-ready packaging.

Works of art

Art comes from ability they say so easily. That that’s true is something you can convince yourself of at Hand.Werk.Haus in Bad Goisern. In the airy, modern converted Neuwildstein castle in the centre of the town everything revolves around masterpieces from the area. Whether it’s loden shoes, horn-rimmed glasses or architecture. The tradition of craftsmanship is long, the skills are rich, the variations are great and the demands - as always – are extremely high. In Goisern you'll find the right insight.



Coffee and gossip

They have beautiful name such as „Dreiklang“, „Goiserer Blume“ or „Ischler Melange“.  There is talk of the fair coffee rarities of the coffee roasting house Hrovat based in Bad Ischl. You can find them in the concept store of the same name at Kreuzplatz. The committed pharmacist couple roasts their carefully selected coffees in an old Renaissance vault at the foot of the Pötschenpass itself. Over a wood fire - for which the coffee beans thank you with their unique aroma.

A world of art

Not everything of inestimable value has to be made of gold. The reflection of sunrays on rippling waters can be enough to awaken the spark of inspiration.  This is what the great master of Austrian Art Nouveau, Gustav Klimt, must have experienced when he observed the shores and hills of his beloved summer destination Attersee in the years between 1900 and 1916. The exhibition “Florale Welten” in honour of the wold-famous artist in the Gusta-Klimt-Zentrum reminds us that this region is rich in masterpieces and art treasures that are just waiting to be discovered at the right moment.

A sweet masterpiece

The art of baking is in Antonia Wienerroither’s blood. After all, she is Austria’s youngest miller and successor in one of the oldest mills in Austria, the Erlachmühle. But next to wheat and rye her heart belongs to the patisserie. With passion she creates the most delicate delights from sugar, cinnamon and all kinds of the finest ingredients in an almost magical way. Just like she learned as an apprentice and then as Demi Chef Pati at the prestigious Hotel Sacher. You can find out more about her and the legendary wood-fired bread in their own bakery.
