1 Wanderung 6 Seen
Your mountain experience in the Ausseerland - Salzkammergut
1 lake is not enough! And that's why we're introducing you to the 6-lake hike on the Tauplitzalm today.
Starting at the foot of the Lawinenstein at Lake Krallersee, the hike leads over the largest lake plateau in Central Europe at 1600 m above sea level.
The duration of the hike and the number of lakes hiked can be adjusted depending on your mood and endurance. Several inns and huts on the Tauplitzalm invite you to take a break and relax after the hike or simply in between.
Winzer Golfraos 17. 07. 2021
Unique in the golfing world: two 9-hole-courses connected with a boat ride across lake Fuschlsee. And the "Winzer Golfroas" is a tournament which should be a fixed date in every golfing calendar.
The special kind of golfing experience - 2 golf courses | a boat ride across lake Fuschlsee | 6 wine growers to meet | subject to change
(Golfroas only by fare weather - evening program at all weather conditions)
The summer retreat radiates under water too. To experience this newcomers exchange their mountain boots for flippers and go “hiking with diving goggles” in the Gimbach. When snorkelling in the rivers Ager and Traun a 100% fish-experience is guaranteed. Diving professionals from all over Europe dive into the depths of the Attersee because they know that, thanks to the geological conditions, one can see up to 30 meters on a sunny day – and that without any artificial light.
The number one
Since this spring you can surf the biggest river wave in Europe in Ebensee. “The Wave”, as it is called, is controlled by two genius hydraulic metal flaps and it even takes on sea waves. Our tip: book a 3-hour basic course and start surfing.
In the wild nature
Adventurers and experts are drawn to Ebenau for canyoning. The exciting half-day tour into the 2.7 kilometre long Strubklamm starts there. With well-trained guides you will descend from rocks to cliffs and ice-cold ponds while the waterfalls next to and below you are rushing by. Nothing for scaredy-cats but brilliant for those who want to feel the power of nature.
Sun salutation on water
Real yogis do not go on vacation, they only change their place of relaxation. In the Salzkammergut summer retreat yoga definitely plays an important role. Courses are offered nearly everywhere and at all levels. In front of dreamlike sceneries – that goes without saying. At the Mondsee you can even get into position on SUP boards in the middle of the lake under guidance. This way an OM becomes an Ohhhhhhh!
A really good run
Those who are on their way to the Wolfgangsee absolutely shouldn’t forget to pack their running shoes. Not because one has to walk so much here but because one is allowed to walk and run all around the lake and that with a great and idyllic view. In addition to the perfectly prepared and maintained network of cycle paths - if you are interested, please ask at the tourist office for the BIKE THE LAKE programme - 11 fantastic routes are waiting for those who love to move. There is something for every level – from beginners to experienced and well-trained runners. All of them are united by the fortune of being in one of the most beautiful landscapes.
Bathing in salt
What once was beneficial to the mother of Emperor Franz Joseph is beneficial to us today as well: swimming and relaxing in the water of Bad Ischl. Salt and brine pamper skin and soul and those who also take the time for therapy support their body in healing and recovering. The famous Eurotherme lures with its 36° warm thermal pool and in addition with many wellness and beauty offers. The surrounding hotels offer true gems for a modern recreational holiday. For example a rooftop pool at Hotel Royal or an 800 m2 wellness and sauna area at Vital Resort Villa Seilern.
By gondola to the sunrise
Rarely are you greeted so excitingly beautiful in the morning as you are at the highest mountain of the Salzkammergut. The magical moment when the darkness lifts during the gondola ride and pink rays of sunlight shine down from the roof of the "Stoan", immerses the guests in a truly breathtaking atmosphere. Those who are not so fond of the morning hour can choose a romantic full moon ride up the Krippenstein. Or another offer from the unique Obertraun mountain experiences. The main thing is to once again get a taste of glacier air.
The catch of a lifetime
Where there is water there is life. Most of the time this is can be observed above the water surface. But the experienced angler knows better: in a region with many large and small lakes and waters the fish is never far away – even though it might be a master in hiding. As food it embellishes city coats of arms and dinner plates, as a trophy it can be found on the walls of one or the other hut. Therefore, anyone with a valid license and a little patience is guaranteed some exciting hours in nature. Because no matter whether one is an indigenous, a professor or even a tailor – at the end of the day one truth awaits: the luck to be able to enjoy untouched nature up close cannot be caught. It comes to you swimming.
