Mountain Retreat

As local summers get hotter, more Viennese are rediscovering the traditional Sommerfrische ("summer freshness") in the form of a summer mountain retreat. Among the most popular spots is Altaussee in Salzkammergut, where families spend their summers plunging into the lake, paddling between mystical Toplitz and Kammersee, Alpine trekking, detoxing with salt treatments at Vivamayr wellness resort, and enjoying local culinary delights like grilled fish on a stick or a simple hilltop Brettljause ("a meat and cheese platter").
