Russbach is far removed from the major flux of tourists, nestling between the Dachstein massif and Wolfgangsee, right in the centre of one of the loveliest landscapes in Austria, the Salzkammergut.
Its location between Salzburg, Upper Austria and Styria will inspire you in every respect. Anywhere else in Austria where joie de vivre, history, culture, cuisine and leisure activities converge so harmoniously and in such a unique landscape then here, some 50 kilometres south of the Mozart town of Salzburg.
RUSSBACH – the picturesque Salzburg village
The brightly planted village square with the snail shell fountain, the well-kept houses with their blooming flowers on wooden balconies, good restaurants and personally run hotels and apartments delight every visitor from the moment they arrive. Everybody who has discovered Russbach will agree: This laid-back mountain village is the perfect place to relax.
Untouched by the imperial summer holidays in nearby Bad Ischl, Russbach was first discovered by visitors in the 1950s; it evolved cautiously and in a thoughtful manner. Its private and personal character has been retained and today, just like before, this is one of the area´s great strengths.
When fresh mountain air, lush greenery and extended hikes feature in your holiday plans; when you are embraced and valued as a person and as a guest; and when you prefer dulcet tones to noise, then you know you´ve arrived in Russbach, Salzburg´s village.
And this village is looking forward to your visit.
