Visit the most authentic Christmas markets

The Salzkammergut area is well known for its history (more than 7000 years of salt mining. . . ), as well as it has been the residence of our Emperor Kaiser Franz Joseph.

Composers, actors and noble people from all over the world came for their summer holidays. The region became famous and still kept its flair.

The amazing landscape with 76 lakes and the high mountains formed the tourism in combination with beautiful sights and all kind of activities possible in nature, especially in the winter period.

Enjoy a boat cruise from St. Gilgen to St. Wolfgang while taking in the beautiful Austrian landscape. An optional ride with the historical steam train (125 year old) is available on request.
