Bad Ischl Things to Do: 28 reviews and 80 photos

by Roeffie


Bad Ischl was the summer residence of the Austrian emperor Franz-Joseph and his Wife Sissi (Elisabeth) They came here many times in summer. The Emperor came especially to hunt here. That was his many hobby. Walking through the Villa you see a lot of hunting trophees on the walls.

The declaration of the first world war was signed here. The papers are still on his desk. After the Austrian duke Franz-Ferdinand was killed in Sarajevo. He declared WW I.

It all happened in Bad Ischl between some hunting parties.
