Ambience at the Romantik Hotel Seevilla
Altaussee is rich in cultural and scenic places of interest. One of these is the historic salt mine, probably the biggest attraction in Altaussee. Salt is still mined there to this day. Enjoy the wild, romantic backdrop in winter, when everything is covered in snow. When the snowflakes are gently falling all around, a ride in a horse-drawn coach through snow-covered Altaussee with a hot punch is just the ticket.
Not only does the Romantik Hotel Seevilla have the lake on its doorstep, but it is also surrounded by the Loser and Trisselwand mountains. This picturesque idyll is absolutely unique. Our hotel is the perfect base for numerous walks and hikes. The most popular route is the 7.5 km walk round Altaussee Lake. The lake is the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer's day or after a good sauna, and the hotel has its own bathing beach.
The Ausseerland is an exceptionally beautiful place in summer and winter. Experience the colourful spectacle of the turning leaves and breathe in the fresh autumn air. The arrival of spring is celebrated every year with one of Austria's biggest festivals – the Narzissenfest (Daffodil Festival). The highlight of the festival is on Sunday, when the magnificent figures, covered in daffodils, are paraded to the guests on cars in the morning and boats in the evening. The boat parade alternates each year between the Grundlsee and Altaussee lakes.
In the former summer retreat of the Austrian court, you should definitely pay a visit to the imperial villa and the legendary pastry shop Zauner. The Kathrinbahn takes you to the local mountain of Bad Ischl.
City of Mozart Salzburg
Once in the cultural city of Salzburg, conquer the Hohensalzburg Fortress, visit the 7th-century Abbey of St. Peter and the picturesque old town. A break in the traditional Café Tomaselli on the Old Market is a blessing afterwards. Tips for children: Hellbrunn Zoo near Salzburg, Großgmain open-air museum, House of Nature.
Visit the oldest salt mine in the world, take a boat trip and marvel at the world-famous ossuary next to the parish church.
In addition to the salt mines in Altaussee, you will also learn a lot of interesting things about the white gold in Hallstatt and Hallein, which made the whole region rich and famous.
