Out of a picture book
The Spa town Bad Ischl as the heart of the Salzkammergut with its “Darling”, mount katrin, has been a place of recreation since the imperial period.
While the city with its cultural diversity and the historic buildings and places leaves nothing to be desired, Bad Ischl’s Darling provides a unique nature experience. The impressive mountain scenery and the almost infinite expanse have always brought people to marvel.
The panoramic view includes mount Dachstein, mount Loser, mount Schafberg, the mountain chains of Gosaukamm, Totes Gebirge and Höllengebirge as well as many other wonderful mountains of the Salzkammergut.
Since 1959, Katrin cable car has brought a range of visitors to the summit. Enjoy a charming 15-minute drive to more than 1,400 m above sea level with spectacular views!
