The Austrian Imperial Couple Franz Joseph and Sisi discovered the Salzkammergut Region with the town of Bad Ischl as their ideal holiday destination for their annual summer retreat. With them the entire imperial household arrived. The Salzkammergut Region was “in” – who counted themselves as part of the Austrian nobility and the upper classes spent their summer holidays around the imperial Villa in Bad Ischl.

Artists, writers and actors however were drawn more towards Altaussee and other places in the Ausseerland, located 30 kilometres away from Bad Ischl. Calmness, a beautiful landscape and nature were inspiration sources and the basis for their creative work.

The Villa Wagner And Johannes Brahms In Altaussee

Laszlo Wagner built a gorgeous Villa at the shores of Lake Altaussee, in which his friend the German composer Johannes Brahms simply loved to stay. Brahms was equally taken with the Altaussee atmosphere as many other artists. The highlights of his stays were the premieres of two of his pieces at the Villa Wagner. The “Spring Quartet and the “Piano Trio” were heard here for the very first time.

From The Villa Wagner To The Four Star Superior Hotel In The Salzkammergut

Almost 30 years ago the Maislinger and Gulewicz families purchased the Villa at Lake Altaussee. They turned the villa into an exceptional holiday resort for demanding guests, who appreciate the beauty of the Ausseerland and the exclusive service. Careful and sensitively the hotel in the Salzkammergut Region was extended in 2006 with a modern spa and wellness area rounding off the Salzkammergut hotel’s holiday offering.
