Bad Aussee Things to Do

  • MERCEDES BRIDGE

    The Mercedes Bridge is described as "The most disgusting representation of corporate power since the invention of copyright.!"I must admit, I found it rather peculiar to see a bridge made into the Mercedes Benz emblem!Built in 2005 at the confluence of Grundlseer and Altausseertraun footbridges in the form of a Mercedes-star, this bridge has a...

  • ISLAND OF TRADITIONAL DRESS

    The Ausseerland is known as “Island of Traditional Costumes of Austria”. Bad Aussee is unique within Austria as its inhabitants wear Tracht, or traditional dress, on a daily basis. For women, this consists of a Dirndl, a type of dress with a fitted bodice and full skirt. Many women choose to wear an Ausseerdirndl, which has a green bodice, a...

  • ARCHDUKE JOHANN - A LOVE STORY

    Walking Bad Aussee, I came across this monument to Archduke Johann. I wondered who this important person was, and since have found out about the love story involving him and Anna Plochl, the postmaster’s daughter of Bad Aussee.A FAIRYTALE! The Archduke fell in love with a "peasant" woman, a woman he badly wanted to make his wife, but couldn't get...

  • TOWN WALK & MONUMENTS

    ON the listed website, is a town walk you can do. It gives a detailed description of all you will see.I would imagine, the Tourist Info centre would have the map too!There is a lot more to see than what I had time for. I did see more monuments, one of them was the Plague Column, which was built in 1679.There are many old buildings dating back to...

  • KURPARK

    The Kurpark is where the Kurhaus is located. This park is on historic ground, as in the 14th century, the Brewhouse, salt pans and salt mine were located here. It was not until 1860, when the salt works were relocated, that the gardens were created. I thought this a lovely area. Obviously, the people in this Town love flowers, and these were...

  • ARCHITECTURE & FRESCOES

    Are you interested in either of these, I am, and here in the old town, I found plenty of frescoes, and different wooden architecture in the form of Balconies. It is known as "typical Aussee wooden architecture," so I assume, it is not found everywhere in Austria.

  • TRAUN RIVER

    The Traun river runs through Bad Aussee and is a delightful area to walk alongside.It seems to be a popular area, and I can see why. I saw nice homes on either side of the river, a weir, and many flowers were in baskets hanging on the fence by the River. The water was probably coming from the Mountains, it certainly looked so fresh and clear as it...

  • NARZISSENFEST

    What a shame we missed the Narzissenfest!I would have loved to been here to see the massive floral sculptures made from daffodil blossoms in their full glory!The Daffodils grow wild, and turn the mountain landscape into a sea of flowers.The Festival is Austria’s biggest flower festival, which takes place for the 53rd time from May 17-20th, in 2012....

  • KAMMERHOF MUSEUM

    When I first saw this building, I thought it was old, and sure enough, it was built in 1395. Even though it has been rebuilt several times, most of the original building still stands today.Up until 1926, the Kammerhof was the salt office building. Now, its a Museum, with the Imperial Hall of note, as this is where Emperor Maximilian once stayed....

Bad Aussee Restaurants

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Restaurant happened to have its Menu out front, it looked appealing, so inside we went.
    We could have sat inside, but as it was fine weather, the Beer garden out the back beckoned us!
    We ordered our meals and were happy with the appearance and taste of both of them.
    We would return if in the area again.

    We didn't know a Heurigen restaurant is one where only its own Wine is served, and a limited selection of cold food as an evening meal, generally local, homemade products is served.
    Many places still provide a selection of small dishes like Liptauer spread, various meat or sausage and bread roll or cheese selections. A Heurigen is only open for a limited time, although local people generally know about the scheduled openings of establishments, through word of mouth or a calendar of the area.

    To know a Heurigen is Open, the tradition is a couple of conifer or fir twigs bound in a circle, or Buschen, hung above the entrance door.

    by Kettleman Written Sep 13, 2006

    Favorite thing: In all my years of travelling the worst place I have encountered for smokingin restaurants is Bad Aussee.

    I can't single out one specifically as they were all appalling with no segregation. So much for EU regulations and directives...
