Giving the mountains to you: a holiday in Altaussee
Altaussee: a vision of green meadows and forests, towering bright summits, which are lit up in the sun and the crystal-clear mysterious lake, in which as well as the numerous fish, some mermaids may be splashing about. In contrast, in the winter a magical landscape of ice and snow awaits, with clean winter air and superb winter sports opportunities.
In Altaussee tradition lives on - the traditional Altaussee costume, the ‘Dirndl’ is still worn today in lots of cheery, bright colours – a modern twist. Fishermen and miners have been a part of life in Altausee for centuries, and the numerous artists too, who are inspired by the lake and the mountains.
