Stories from the Salzkammergut

Highlights in January

[Translate to Englisch:]

At the beginning of the new year, everything in the Salzkammergut revolves around outdoor sports and activities in the fresh air. Winter sports enthusiasts can look forward to perfectly groomed cross-country trails, freshly prepared slopes and snow-covered hillsides. Nevertheless, there is also plenty to discover away from the snow. For example, at Moonscape - the Escape Room in Mondsee - visitors are transported to another time and have to solve tricky tasks to save Mondsee. Those who want to take a more laid-back approach can indulge in the wellness offers in the Attersee-Attergau region.
