Narcissus festival in Bad Aussee
Bad Aussee is a popular Austrian town located in the state of Styria. With some 5,000 inhabitants the town is rather small, but there is one event when it becomes the center of attention – the Narcissus festival (Narzissenfest). That’s the time when locals create massive flower statues in order to put them on boats. A great amount of these boats then decorate the Grundl-lake or Altausseer-lake.
