Bad Aussee
The Essential
Bad Aussee enjoys a mountain setting full of peaks, framing picturesque lakes, and offers an exceptional choice of walks and excursions. This small capital of the Styrian Salzkammergut has retained memories of its great man, the popular Archduke Johann, whose storybook romance with Anna Plochl, the local postmaster's daughter, was widely talked about in the 19C. The old town's Chlumeckyplatz gathers together Bad Aussee's main historical buildings.
