When the year blossoms

Lush greenery and refreshing peace in Ausseerland

Winters in Styrian Salzkammergut can be beautiful, but also very long. And yet, the lush greenery battles its way through the snow-covered fields, and once the meadows have reclaimed their place and their life shines through, spring has come to Ausseerland. Spring blooms into a white sea of thousands of narcissi, wrapping the area in a unique and very special fragrance.

Spring holidays in Styria

Spring awakening at the Salzkammergut region

It is hard to believe: in the space of only a few days the mountain environment surrounding Lake Altaussee shakes off winter and radiates in lush green.

The silence of winter slowly turns into the vibrant music of spring at the Ausseerland in Austria. Bird songs and the buzzing of insects fill the air and wild mountain rivers cascade from their headwaters near the snow-covered summits. Enjoy the symphony of spring during your spring holidays in Styria.

Destinations in March, April and May

You can experience the Narzissenfest (narcissus festival) in Ausseerland at the end of May. Elaborate figures are put together from flowers in countless hours of work in the night before the town parade in Bad Aussee. The boat parade takes place in alternate years on Lake Altaussee and Lake Grundlsee.

Excursion destinations and activities in spring around the Seevilla

Use a stay at the Seevilla in spring for hiking and discover the blooming meadows around Altaussee. For example, you can start from the hotel and take a relaxed stroll in Blaa Alm to get your fill of the fields of narcissi.

You can also pedal in style with the retro bikes from the Seevilla. These comfortable wheels can be hired from reception to allow you to cruise through Ausseerland. Each bike is fitted with a basket for purchases from the nearby communities or to take a picnic on your cycling tour.
