Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Bad Ischl - Apartment Bad Ischl Bergblick

Your home from home in the heart of the beautiful Salzkammergut!

The apartment Bad Ischl Bergblick is a comfortable, fully-equipped apartment, with light and airy rooms. It is owned and run by an English family living locally, who personally prepare it for their guests. It is in a traditionally styled building, in a quiet no-through road, yet within easy walking distance of the town centre, station, and thermal baths. It has a double bedroom with a large double bed and wardrobe. the lounge has two comfortable armchairs, a sofa, and dining area. There is a log-burning stove in the lounge. It has a separate fully-equipped kitchen, with an oven, ceramic hob, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, refrigerator and dishwasher. The large, fully-tiled bathroom has a large washbasin, full-size bath, a separate shower enclosure, and has underfloor heating. There is a separate WC. There is also a washing machine, and a drying rack is provided. Cycle and ski storage is available on-site.

The balcony, which is accessible from the bedroom and lounge, has wonderful views of the Zimnitz mountain and the fantastic sunsets. A table and chairs are provided for you to relax. Please note there is no garden.

WINTER ACTIVITIES

In winter, there is superb skiing at Dachstein West (Upper Austria’s largest ski area), or at Postalm (Europe’s second largest high mountain plateau). Both resorts are suitable for all ages and abilities. Cross-country skiing is also very popular in the area, particularly at Rettenbachalm, on the outskirts of Bad Ischl, and at Gosau, where there are approximately 45km of prepared tracks in a beautiful valley setting particularly suitable for beginners. Ski buses to all of these areas can be found within 5 minutes walk of the apartment, and is free for guests staying 3 nights or more. We can provide more information on request.

Some walking is still possible as there are cleared paths, and the local tourist office can provide further information

In Bad Ischl itself, the thermal spa is open all year, and it is possible to swim outside amid the snow!

And of course there are the advent markets, particularly round Lake Wolfgang where can enjoy a day travelling between them by boat.

.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES

This property is ideally situated for taking advantage of the natural beauty of the area. Cyclists of all ages are catered for, from flat cycle paths alongside picturesque rivers, to mountain biking amongst the magnificent scenery (cycle hire is available locally). For those interested in walking, there are many possibilities in the area, from light evening strolls from the apartment, to more taxing walks in the mountains. Once again, we can assist if you would like more information, as we are keen walkers ourselves!

At Lake Wolfgang, there is a whole range of water sports available, including sailing, pedalo hire, wind surfing, or simply swimming. All the lakes in the area are drinking-water quality, and are crystal clear. Lake Wolfgang is just a short car or bus ride away from Bad Ischl. In the summer, spend a day relaxing on a boat visiting the quaint towns of St. Wolfgang, St. Gilgen and Strobl, all with their own characters.

Golfing is available at the Salzkammergut golf course, less than 15 minutes drive from the apartment

SIGHTSEEING

For those who are less active, or if you just want to relax a little more, there are plenty of things to do both in the immediate area and further afield. Take a trip up the Schafberg mountain by rack railway, or the Zwölferhorn by cable car and enjoy magnificent views. The latter is particularly beautiful in the winter, with cleared paths and cosy mountain huts to warm up in with a glass of hot mulled wine!

A visit to Hallstatt is a must. From its old buildings dating back hundreds of years, perched on precipitous slopes in seemingly impossible locations, to the Bronze Age burial site, it cannot fail to impress and delight the visitor. Take a boat trip round the Hallstättersee (Lake Hallstatt), amongst the mountains that surround it. Other attractions in the same area include the Ice Caves, Krippenstein (with its almost lunar landscape), and the Five Fingers, a viewing platform with stunning views over Lake Hallstatt and far beyond.

Or go to Salzburg, with it's wonderful old buildings and modern shops, easily reachable by public transport. Further afield, the Austrian cities of Graz and Linz are ideal for day trips, as are Berchtesgaden, the Eagle's Nest, and Königsee in Germany,

About Mike and Jenny Herridge

We moved permanently to this beautiful area of Austria in 2009 from Southern England, and now live near the Wolfgangsee. We are familiar with the area and what it has to offer, and thus can help you make the most of your holiday here, whether you want advice on outdoor activities or where to eat in the many restaurants locally.

Mike and Jenny Herridge purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mike and Jenny Herridge chose Bad Ischl

We have been visiting Austria for many years, both summer and winter, and decided to buy ourselves a holiday home here. We fell in love with Bad Ischl in general, and this apartment in particular, at first sight. Being in such a quiet area, yet near the river and within easy walking distance of the town, meant that it was ideal for us. Having spent two years visiting it, we moved to Austria permanently in 2009.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment was built as an everyday apartment, and as a result it is roomy and comfortable. The separate bedroom and kitchen, with a good-sized light and airy living/dining room means that you can really feel it is a home from home! The location, just 5 minutes walk from the train and bus stations, 7 minutes from the thermal baths, and less than 10 minutes from the centre, means that a car is not necessary to enjoy the area.

Lastly, being able to wake up in the morning to views of the mountains, and to sit on the balcony in the evening to enjoy the sunsets over Zimnitz, makes it a perfect spot!

Great location

  • 5 out of 5
A spacious and very clean apartment located in the heart of the Austrian Lake District. We arrived by train and were able to use the regular public transport facitilites which are a 5 minute walk from the apartment. You get a free Erlebnis card allowing you discount on train travel and various attractions. The owners live nearby and gave us a very warm welcome and were very helpful. Their local knowledge was invaluable.

We had a great week there.

Apartment Bergblick, Bad Ischl

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is clean, spacious, well-equipped and conveniently located. It is only a few minutes' walk from the railway and bus stations, from which there are good train and bus services to all parts of the Salzkammergut and Salzburg, and also from town centre supermarkets.

The owners are obviously keen that visitors should enjoy the Salzkammergut as much as they do. My wife and I would happily stay here again and I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to others.

Bad Ischl lies nestled in the heart of the Salzkammergut, at the confluence of the rivers Traun and Ischl. It is a spa town, and because of its climate, was chosen as the ideal spot for the summer retreat of the Kaiser whose former home can be visited today.

The Salzkammergut itself is Austria´s Lake District. It is one of the most beautiful areas of Austria being designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. Within twenty minutes drive are Hallstatt and Lake Wolfgang.

In winter, there is skiing at Dachstein West or at Postalm (Europe’s second largest high mountain plateau). Both resorts are suitable for all ages and abilities. And of course there are the advent markets, particularly round Lake Wolfgang where you can enjoy a day travelling between them by boat.

Or why not consider a day trip to somewhere further afield, such as historic Salzburg, Linz, Graz or Berchtesgaden. If you have time, take a boat trip along the Danube, or visit the Czech Republic.

Golf: Golf is available at the Golfclub Salzkammergut (5km), and at Mondsee (30km), set in a wonderful position alongside the Mondsee Lake

Ski: Extensive downhill skiing is available at Dachstein West and at Postalm. There are also extensive langlauf (cross country) facilities at many places within the area - in the winter it is possible to ski almost to Bad Ischl from Lake Wolfgang. If you have a mixture of downhill and langlauf skiers in your party, both Dachstein West and Postalm are ideal, with both facilities available at each resort.

There is a ski bus linking Bad Ischl with Dachstein West and Postalm, and there is a daily minibus service to Rettenbachalm.
