Bad Ischl, the banner town of the 2024 Capital of Culture, is one of the cultural centers of the Salzkammergut region with its long history and magnificent buildings. “Like in a fairy tale” is what you hear when the many tourists make a pilgrimage here to follow in the footsteps of the emperor and Sissi.
Beyond the prosperity and the dreamlike beauty, people whose financial possibilities are severely limited also live here. On a housing estate in Roith, a district of Bad Ischl, such people live in a complex of buildings owned by the municipality. On closer inspection, this housing estate, which is in need of renovation and is wonderfully embedded in nature, is home to people who strongly identify with their space, help each other and design their living environment in a committed and loving manner.
