OUT OF A PICTURE BOOK

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.
