Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt

Bad Goisern am Hallstättersee, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Tradition and customs, folk music and craftsmanship, harmony and opposites - this is what unites the Goiserer valley in the heart of the Salzkammergut. The birthplace of Hubert von Goisern gently hugs Lake Hallstatt in the north and the imperial city of Bad Ischl in the south.

Active holidays in the Salzkammergut

Together with the towns of Gosau at Dachstein, Hallstatt and Obertraun, Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt is part of the Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut UNESCO World Heritage region. Here, one moment you're wearing dirndl and leather trousers at a party - the next moment you find yourself in a sporty biker outfit mountain biking, gravel biking and road biking, with hiking boots, hiking hat and walking stick on one of the numerous hiking trails in the valley or on the mountain or with bow and arrow on one of our archery field courses.

Refreshment and sports in Lake Hallstatt

Bad Goisern is located on the shores of the Lake Hallstatt, one of the most famous lakes in the Salzkammergut. In harmony with nature, the lake nestles into the idyllic landscape between the Sarstein, Obertraun, Hallstatt and Bad Goisern. Motorboats are largely prohibited (except for the round trip boats) and thus the lake also maintains its drinking water quality. It is not only popular with bathers, but also with divers and sportsmen who want to cool off in the lake after their activities.

A place full of tradition, customs and craftsmanship

In Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt traditions and customs are still alive. Be it at the regulars' tables in the inns, where you can still meet the locals in dirndls and lederhosen, or at the various event highlights such as the Goiserer Gamsjagatagen (festival of tradition and customs) or the "Aufgeigen in the Kirchengasse" (violin festival).

Important for Goiserer is the craft. In the Hand.Werk.Haus in the castle Neuwildenstein you can learn a lot about the history of handicraft. You can also visit real, rustic production facilities and experience the production live on site, such as at the original Goiserer shoemaker, in the ANNAMAX mustard factory or in the mill of Anzenau.
