Spectacularly rich in culture, history, and scenic splendor, Bad Ischl is considered a spa town sitting in the southern part of Upper Austria; at the Traun River in the center of the Salzkammergut region. With its riverside location, Wilhelmine architecture, and proximity to the wonderfully formed Mount Katrin, it really is a masterpiece. The picturesque town has its history of involvement with salt mining and brine pools. And during the 1500’s, a salt mine was opened in the town that boosted the economy. When Brine became popular for medicinal purposes, Bad Ischl turned into a fashionable spa resort, serving the renowned and wealth Austrians. With Kaiservilla as a popular tourist destination, this town is really a must-visit for everyone. Travel now and try these accommodations listed on our top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in Bad Ischl, Austria.
