Lake hopping in the Salzkammergut region

May we present: Attersee, Fuschlsee, Mondsee & Wolfgangsee.

Austria’s Salzkammergut region is famous for its mountains.
Moreover, famous for its lakes. All total 67 lakes wait for discovery.
Some of them only accessible after a long hiking tour, others known worldwide from China to Buenos Aires.

However, what is so special about the Austrian lakes in the Salzkammergut?

Like no other lake in Austria, even in Europe, they represent due to their history and traditions the very special Austrian feeling of summer retreat. From the very beginning of travelling nobility, artists and scientist fled from the hot summer in the city to the Salzkammergut lakes not only to recreate but also to exchange their thoughts and find inspiration for new creations. Even the Austrian Emperor ruled the entire empire from the lakeside and changed Europe’s history.
Today the lakes still benefit from their history but lakeside-life nowadays is not as serious as it used to be.

The scenery, said to be the hardware, are the lakes situated between wooded hills, steep mountains and picturesque villages. The hospitable locals, their habits and traditions deliver the software. In addition, summer retreat nowadays lasts from January to December.

All of the four famous Salzkammergut lakes, Attersee, Fuschlsee, Mondsee and Wolfgangsee hide their very special secret.
Of course, the lakes are also a hotspot for water sports and many more outdoor activities like hiking and biking.
