Bad Ischl

Unusually potent saltwater springs were discovered in this region as early as the 16th century, but Bad Ischl did not become a popular health resort until the early 1800s, when the court doctor ordered saline treatments for the infertile Archduchess Sophie. Soon, she started producing babies. The most famous of these was Franz Joseph I, the future emperor, who spent all his summer holidays with his wife Elizabeth at the Kaiservilla. It was also here that he signed the declaration of war with Serbia, on 1 August 1914, signalling the start of World War I. Many aristocrats and artists have been attracted to the spa, among them the composer Franz Leh?r, who lived at Leh?rkai, which is now a museum devoted to him.
