Are you familiar with the Salzkammergut region? You're bound to have already visited there once and admired the rugged mountains, turquoise blue lakes and lovely hills. You're also bound to have already visited a traditional festival and had fun with the locals. What do you mean you haven't? Well, it's high time you did then!

Lots of places - one aim - for you to have fun

The Salzkammergut region is characterised by lakes and mountains. What is particularly interesting for you starting out from Hallwang are the regions around the Attersee, Mondsee-Irrsee, Fuschlsee region, as far as the Dachstein and Ausseerland region. In between these our guests find everything a holidaymaker in Austria could desire. Recreational and sports opportunities, an abundance of water and lake adventures and lots of tradition and customs that invite you to immerse yourself in this region.

Water, lakes & swimming fun

However you get around in the Salzkammergut region there is always a lake nearby. In the spirit of a traditional summer retreat the lakes invite you to sunbathe, swim and relax. Although you can be a bit more active too of course. The wind is your friend when you come to the lake for surfing, kite surfing or sailing. If you want to submerge you can explore one of the many diving spots at the Salzkammergut lakes. After an active day in the water there are all sorts of cafés and beach bars where you can stop for a cosy break and perfectly round off a sunny day.

You have the best view at the top

Away from water sports, a breathtaking mountain landscape opens up to you in the Salzkammergut region. With your walking boots you can be at the front. Hike to one of the region's many magic spots or set off on a sunrise hike up to the Schoberstein - you supposedly have the best view over the region's surrounding lakes from there at the top. If you feel more drawn by the vertical or high mountains, you can find happiness on the quite sporty via ferrata or on an alpine tour up the Dachstein glacier.

Cycling through a great region

You are all the more at home in the Salzkammergut region on your road bike or mountain bike. You will be impressed by a number of scenically attractive mountain bike routes from easy to sporty. Similarly to the hiking tours, the lake district offers rather easy tours while things get pretty tough on the Dachstein tour over three days. Do you prefer the thinner tyres though? Then you'll feel at home in the Salzburger Land and Salzkammergut road bike region. Road cycling is really big here. From easy circular tours to hilly interval training to tough mountain climbs, the region has everything to offer.
