Sweet Chestnut Forest
In Unterach, on the slope of the Mondseer Flyschberge mountain range, the copper beech trees of a 3,7513 hecatare forest are interspersed with a high proportion of sweet chestnut trees.
What is so special about this is the fact that nowhere north of the Alps chestnuts attain full maturity - except here in Unterach in the beautiful Salzkammergut region. This is due to the mild climate where even wine can thrive.
On the occasion of his 60th crown jubilee, an anniversary tree was planted in honor of Emperor Franz Josef on 18 August 1908.
In autumn, Unterach is all about chestnuts and the people of Unterach celebrate the Chestnut Festival with their guests.
