Moonscape - the Escape Room in Mondsee

Escape the winter blues with Bavarian Duke Odilo!

It is the year 738. Mondsee, Bavaria.

A small, picturesquely situated village in Upper Austria. The residents go about their daily work - not realizing that their home could have disappeared from the scene in about 90 minutes! The last salvation for the residents of Mondsee - amongst them Bavarian Duke Odilo and his lover Helena - could be a team of the cleverest minds of Mondsee, with unimaginable cohesion, creative ideas and logical conclusions. Only they can manage to save the idyllic place from ruin!

With this exciting story Gabi and Zsolt begin the adventure with their guests from the first escape room "Moonscape" in Mondsee. In their rooms you can be “creatively” locked up, so to speak, and try with a team of 2-6 people to escape from various rooms by cracking codes, solving puzzles and teamwork.

Nature experience in January

Special bird observation places around Mondsee and Irrsee

Many species of birds migrate south during the cold winter months. While some species such as swallows and storks make it to Africa, waterfowl in particular spend their winter north of the Alps. When the waters freeze over in their traditional breeding grounds in Scandinavia and their natural habitat is no longer liveable, a colorful variety of water birds can also be found on the Salzkammergut lakes.



Imagine gliding over...

...perfectly groomed trails in the midst of the magnificent backdrop of the deeply snow-covered Salzkammergut. Take in the winterly landscape, breath in work on you, breathe in the clear, cold air and feel how your body and soul come to rest. Around Lake Wolfgangsee you have the choice: would you prefer to stay down in the valley and enjoy one of the many routes along Lake Wolfgang or admire the marvellous panorama up on the magnificent Postalm?


Every day the track groomers...

strive to provide the best conditions over a total of over 70 km! Whichever variant you choose, an unforgettable experience is guaranteed.

After physical activity in the crystal clear air, or simply in between, the establishments around the lake invite you to stop for a break. Whether a short rest and refreshment in a rustic alpine hut on the Postalm, or as a successful end of the day in a homely inn or restaurant, the hosts at Lake Wolfgangsee have the right culinary offer for you.



During the winter months...‘s still quiet in the Attersee-Attergau region: far away from stress and hectic, time for yourself and your loved ones takes centre stage. Explore the region, depending on the weather, on a snowshoe hike, a leisurely winter walk, tobogganing, curling or ice skating. If you are drawn to the warm, a cosy wellness and relaxation day is just the right thing for you: Let yourself be pampered! For romantics, the natural night sky around the Attersee-Traunsee Nature Park is just your thing - the area is about to become Austria's first Dark Sky Park.
