In winter, the long-drawn Goiserer Valley wraps itself in a white blanket of snow and turns into a winter sports resort away from the hustle and bustle of the Alps. The birthplace of Hubert von Goisern gently hugs Lake Hallstättersee in the north and the imperial city of Bad Ischl in the south.
The winter offers many opportunities for a relaxing stay in one of Upper Austria´s most beautiful regions. The broad and tranquil Goisern valley stretches from Hallstatt lake in the south to Bad Ischl, the Emperor´s holiday retreat and spa town, in the north. Bad Goisern is a hidden gem for visitors in winter!
We are proud to belong to the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Region Hallstatt/Dachstein. This status was awarded thanks to 2500 years of surviving local culture and tradition, and also thanks to the outstanding natural beauty of our surroundings. One of the highlights of the winter months is the celebration of Advent in the Salzkammergut and the many events which are organised.
