An evening walk together along the Traunkai of Bad Ischl makes you feel the longed-for sense of peace and security that often gets lost during everyday life.

In winter, embark on an extraordinary journey of discovery through Bad Ischl and be impressed by this picturesque winter scene. After the horse-drawn sleigh ride you can warm up with a glass of Glühwein (hot wine punch) at the annual Christmas market or with a cup of tea in one of the traditional cafés.

Traditional Kripperroas in the Salzkammergut

Bad Ischl is known for living traditions. The ornated manufacturing of Christmas cribs are operated by private people as a traditional craft. Hundreds of years old cribs are proudly owned privately and can be visited from December to February directly at the owner and often the builder (Krippenbauer).

Roas stands for journey / trip because there is a 3 to 4 hours tour in front of you. The first stop will take you from the Hotel Goldener Ochs to the opposite banks of the Traun River into the museum of the city Bad Ischl. There you can marvel at the famous “Kalss Krippe” as well as other historical crib works of art. Afterwards, the horse-drawn sleigh takes you through the snow-covered Bad Ischl to various house cribs. Take the opportunity and experience real traditions in the winter landscape of the Salzkammerguts.

Experience the winter wonderland around Bad Ischl and let a local fiacre show you the most beautiful places in the city or explore the landscape with a comfortable cross-country ski tour.

Just ask for a non-binding holiday offer at the Hotel Goldener Ochs and the staff will gladly book a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride for you, where you can adjust yourself to the winter time of contemplation in peace and quiet.
