A Summer Retreat in Aussee, Austria
The Comeback Of The Imperial Summer Retreat In The Salzkammergut
The Salzkammergut Region was during the Austrian Monarchy the holiday region, where the imperial couple Sisi and Franz spent their summer retreat – bringing the entire imperial household and wealthy upper class members with them.
While the Austrian Emperor and nobility chose to reside in Bad Ischl during their summers, the Viennese bourgeoisie, artists and literati spent their summer retreat in Aussee. Ever since Johannes Brahms, who premiered two of his compositions in the former Villa Wagner, today’s Hotel Seevilla in Altaussee became accepted in polite society.

Luckily the Thousand Year Reich only lasted a few disastrous years and peaceand wealth soon found their way back to the Ausseerland.
