Large, modern and well equipped apartment
This apartment is close to all the sights in Bad Ischl and the bus/train station. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners, Mike and Jenny are very friendly and welcoming. A pick up from the bus and helpful information about the apartment and sights in the area was much appreciated.
We're glad that you liked our apartment, and found our advice useful. We always try to help our guests as much as possible, and it's nice to be appreciated. We hope that you enjoy the rest of your stay in Europe.
The apartment is well positioned for walking into Bad Ischl and exploring the Austrian Lake District. It is peaceful and remained cool in very hot weather. It is also well equipped and spacious. The balcony was a welcome addition for outdoor dining.
Great vacation rental
Very good apartment for spending a relaxing vacation both in this lovely town and for further explorations to nearby lakes and towns.. The view from the house was amazing. The house was also very clean, tidy, and well-thought for guests’ use. Check-in time was flexible and communications with the host was easy and smooth. Highly recommended!
We're glad that you enjoyed your stay in Bad Ischl, and liked the apartment. We think it's in a good location, and we prepare it ourselves to make sure that it's clean and tidy. You were a nice guest to host. Hope to see you again sometime!
A beautiful apartment with a fully stocked kitchen and views of a lovely river. The location was perfect for strolling through the town of Bad Ischl as well as trips to Hallstatt and Salzburg. Mike and Jenny were there to greet us and provide us with complete instructions about the apartment as well as suggestions on what to see and do. We especially appreciate their suggestion to dine at Attwenger Restaurant at the end of the road. Absolutely the best meal we’ve ever had!! Would definitely recommend this lovely apartment and would enjoy coming back ourselves!
We're glad that you liked our apartment and its location. We renovated it in November 2018 to make sure that it remains looking good! We always personally meet our guests and try to be as helpful as we can. We're glad that you enjoyed the restaurant, it's our favourite in Bad Ischl as well! We would be delighted if you returned, we are always pleased to see such nice guests return.
Most beautiful location in walking distance to everything you need. The flat
Has everything you need, including a very cook friendly kitchen. It was decorated beautifully for the holidays and I would highly recommend for anyone to stay here. Lots of attention to detail with everything you need. The owners are very friendly and helpful with anything you need. Will definitely come back again.
We're glad that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment, and found it ideal for your needs. We try to make sure it's fully equipped, and we never underestimate the importance of meeting and greeting our guests personally. Thank you for leaving it so clean and tidy! We look forward to meeting you again.
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, where you can visit the Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus) and the Königsee. 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. 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 is ideal, with both facilities available.
There is a ski bus linking Bad Ischl with Dachstein West, and there is a daily minibus service to Rettenbachalm for cross country skiing.

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 very 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!
