t took millions of years to form this unique landscape, which was subject to constant change. Today the Ausseerland is home to many rare animals and plants, which have perfectly adapted to the region.

Nature In Aussee: Rare Plants:

One plant made the entire Ausseerland famous: the wild growing Narcissus. During May the meadows are dotted with the white flower heads and the unique smell of the Narcissus is carried far by the wind. Seevilla Tip: Discover the bloom of the Narcissus and partake in the Narcissus Festival in May.
