Recreation by the lake: Summer holidays and Archduke Johann

Archduke Johann greatly enjoyed recreation at the lakes of the Salzkammergut Region, a part of Austria he came to love in his younger years. The son of Emperor Leopold II and Maria Ludovica of Spain developed a keen affection for the mountains and crystal clear lakes of the Salzkammergut Region in his youth.

Archduke Johann, heir to the Austrian throne, felt so strongly attached to the Salzkammergut Region and its inhabitants that he abdicated the throne. He married the commoner Anna Plochl, daughter to the local post master, and renounced the pomp of the imperial court in Vienna.
