Bad Aussee
The Essential
One of Bad Aussee's claims to fame is its position in the geographical centre of the country. This small town owes its prosperity to the sulphur- and sodium-rich waters from the Altausee salt mines and their commercial and industrial operations. Bad Aussee and its surroundings are part of the magnificent Salzkammergut region with its stunning nature, in particular four pretty lakes, an area perfect for mountain and lakeside hikes and excursions.
