Welcome to Bad Goisern

The landscape garden of the Salzkammergut

The wide and charismatic valley of Bad Goisern stretches out from Hallstatt in the south to Bad Ischl, the summer holiday resort of the emperor in the north. Discoveries dating back to the Stone Age and the Hallstatt period enable us to establish that there was a close contact with villagers from the surrounding regions. The wood and agriculture industry developed very early in the wide fertile valley of Bad Goisern, to supply the mine in Hallstatt. This is how Bad Goisern is where it is now, on prettiest landscapes of the Salzkammergut. This enchanting village used to be called “The Monarchies most beautiful village“ and still hasn’t lost any of its charm.
