The name "Sausal" is mentioned in documents from the Middle Ages as "Susil". It is derived from the Latin "Solva silva" (Sulmwald). Only in an older publication is the opinion published that the name derives from “Sau suhle ” because of the abundance of wild boars in the area .
The main towns in the area are Sankt Nikolai im Sausal in the north, Sankt Andrä-Höch in the west and Kitzeck im Sausal in the south . Popular lookout points are on the Demmerkogel in the center and on the Kreuzkogel in the east of the region.
The Klapotetz is a cultural characteristic of the area .
