The saline regimen attracts visitors from all over the world; even the Austrian emperors improved their health by drinking and bathing in the famous saline waters. Bad Ischl owes its fame as a spa resort to the Arch Duchess Sophie, who spent time convalescing after several miscarriages in Bad Ischl, enjoying treatments of saline, sulphur and mud-baths. The duchess was firmly convinced that it was due to these treatments that she gave birth to the so called "salt princes“, Emperor Franz Josef and his brother Ferdinand Maximilian.
