The magic of Altaussee is also reflected in the name of the village. Everything here has tradition.
Just like hundreds of years ago, the miners still work in the salt mines. Fishers, like their ancestors, catch their char in the crystal-clear lake. And guests love their Altausee just like the first foreigners did, when they first came to this place more than a hundred years ago and discovered that they were not foreign there but safe and that their dreams had come true. Altaussee has always attracted creative people like painters, writers, musicians. You’re well advised to follow their example. The landscape embraces its guests with bright limestone summits, mountain forests and flower fields or with white, snow-covered surfaces and lays down a bare, blue lake at their feet that invites to bathing in summer time or with slippery ice in winter time, treating the eyes to new images again and again.
