Cultural holiday in Bad Ischl with many facets
Festivities are celebrated with lots of love and care in Salzkammergut – traditions and modern culture in Salzkammergut make for an appealing ensemble. If buildings could talk, you’d be all ears, because the imperial city of Bad Ischl has many interesting stories to tell. This task is taken on by the museums in Bad Ischl. As part of the traditional events, the Emperor’s birthday is celebrated while many other traditions are preserved as well.
Culture in Salzkammergut
Lovely Salzkammergut with its picturesque mountains and quaint lakes has inspired a number of famous artists over the centuries, including the painter Rudolf Alt, composer Gustav Mahler and writer Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach. When Emperor Franz Joseph chose Bad Ischl as his summer residence, some of the major composers of his time followed him, e.g. Franz Lehár, the master of operetta, who wrote his timeless works in Bad Ischl. The annual Lehárfestival has taken place in his honour for almost 50 years. More information Lehárfestival Bad Ischl
