Relax and renew in Austria’s spa town

Been working hard all summer and need a break to reset and refresh? Check out Bad Ischl, Austria, for a blissful getaway!

Kaiser Villa

This villa was originally gifted to Empress Elisabeth, also called “Sisi,” for her engagement in 1854. The summer home is fully furnished and complete with a shop and cafe. The 14-room villa was too small to be an acceptable home for the royal family; therefore, two extensions were added on. Guided tours are offered continuously from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. throughout the summer months. For further information on the villa’s history and features, visit the main webpage.

Katrin Cable Car

Great views of Bad Ischl are fully on display as you ride on this classic cable car. Once you’ve ridden the cable car, hike one of several trails across three gorgeous mountain peaks, offering panoramic views. After a few hours of hiking, you are sure to have worked up an appetite! Visit the nearby Mountain Inn to grab some delicious food and enjoy the scenery. For ticket options, visit the tourism website.
