Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut, Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut, Upper Austria
Lake Wolfgang stretches about 10.5 kilometres from the northwest to the southeast. It is divided into two parts by a peninsula, called die Enge (the Narrow), situated roughly in the middle of its southern shore opposite St. Wolfgang, where the breadth is no more than 200 metres. The western portion of the lake at St. Gilgen is known as the Abersee.

Sankt Gilgen, Austria
The parish church is dedicated to Saint Aegidius (Latin), in English Saint Giles, which is reflected in the name of the town, Sankt Gilgen.
St. Gilgen is a well-known travel destination. Boats from St. Gilgen sail around the Wolfgangsee, providing transport and views of the surrounding mountains. The hermitage of the original St. Gilgen may be seen, behind a chapel, in the Falkenstein cliffs west of St. Wolfgang and east of Fürberg.
In 2005 St. Gilgen was promoted as the "Mozart Village" by the Wolfgangsee Tourist Board. Although Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart never visited St. Gilgen (as he had intended to), his grandfather worked in the town, his mother was born in St. Gilgen, and his sister Nannerl moved there after her marriage. The village now boasts a first-class international school, the St. Gilgen International School.

Bad Ischl, Bad Ischl, Upper Austria
Bad Ischl was a settlement area since the Hallstatt culture, first mentioned in a 1262 deed as Iselen. In 1419 Archduke Albert V of Austria established the local seat of the Salt Chamber (Salzkammer) at Wildenstein Castle, and Ischl was granted the privileges of a market town in 1466 by Emperor Frederick III. A first salt mine was opened in 1563, a salt evaporation pond (Saline) followed in 1571.
When in the early 19th century brine came into use for medical purposes, Ischl soon became a fashionable spa resort with notable guests like Prince Klemens Wenzel von Metternich and Archduke Franz Karl of Austria. The Hotel Post opened in 1828 was the first one in the whole Salzkammergut area. In 1849 Franz Karl's son, Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria chose the town for his summer residence.

Hallstatt, Hallstatt, Upper Austria
Hallstatt Salt mine and Skywalk. Accessible by cable car or a three-minute journey aboard the funicular railway, it's well worth visiting for the wonderful views from the Skywalk, a viewing platform extending over a sheer drop with Hallstatt 350 meters directly below. More spectacular views are from historic Rudolf's Tower (Rudolfsturm), an old fortification built to defend the mines against invaders, now a restaurant and observation tower. The star attraction, however, is the 7,000-year-old salt mine itself.
The Hallstätter See, Hallstatt's Old Town and Market Square.The village clusters around its charming Marktplatz, surrounded by traditional houses, and a highlight is the elegant Holy Trinity statue. In the center of town is the 19th-century Evangelical Church of Hallstatt, its tall, slender spire a lakeside landmark.Catholic Parish Church and Ossuary Chapel,The World Heritage Museum.
