Summer resort: Love of life and well-being 

The summer resort holiday in the Austrian Alps has a long tradition. Those who in earlier times could afford it escaped the heat of the city during summer months and settled in the countryside. Poets and thinkers, nobility and upper classes were the traditional "summer tourists" who knew how to appreciate the beauty of the mountains and nature. Enjoy this light, pleasant attitude towards life!
