When the lake freezes over

Curling at the Irrsee

At the Irrsee in Mondseeland, Johann Hufnagl manufactures ice stocks on his lathe. When the lake freezes over in winter, the carpenter in pension is busy.
There is a smell of wood and fire from the stove. The snow is piling up in front of the panorama window of the Hufnagl joinery in Oberhofen am Irrsee in Mondseeland. The water can be seen not far, the natural bank is barely visible. In summer, bathers cavort here, "in winter, when the lake is frozen over, there is a lot more going on," reveals Johann Hufnagl.

continue reading

The carpenter stands at the lathe and works on an ice stick. He has been retired for a good ten years. The joinery he founded in 1970 was taken over by his son Georg. On the workbenches, circular saws, on the veneer press and in the injection room, boxes, doors and beds are created throughout the year. Kitchens, relaxation loungers or table sets. In the cold season of the year there is also an increasing number of ice stocks. “When the lake freezes, it has to be quick,” says Hufnagl. If the bare ice shines on Irrsee in the Upper Austrian Salzkammergut, people want their ice stock. For the game with friends and neighbors. For the joy of winter. For a bit of conviviality. People gossip and play over steaming cups full of tea and mulled wine. The sticks fly over the ice. The children with the skates across the lake. Who comes closer to the stave (target object)? Who will win the next game? Who will throw the next round? Laughter, red-cheeked faces, happy hours.



From the Ausseerland-Salzkammergut region

The endless expanses of the cross-country ski trails in the Ausseerland can be enjoyed on more than 200 km of cross-country trails. The fantastic high-altitude trails on the Tauplitzalm cover the need for mountain air and sporty ambition. The cross-country trails in the extensive valley around Bad Mitterndorf and near Pichl-Kainisch ensure special enjoyment.


continue reading

With a view of the mountains, lots of sun and tranquil stretches, cross-country skiing is a real pampering program here. Some of the routes that have been awarded the Styrian seal of quality also lead in Bad Aussee, Altaussee and Grundlsee.

Tip: The Steiralauf offers a great sporting experience. From January 28th to 29th, 2022, Bad Mitterndorf will once again be transformed into a cross-country mecca. The organization team again promises a top-class cross-country event. The sporty everyone-event inspires both amateur cross-country skiers and professional athletes.

Wandern im Oktober

The leaves turn discolored and the lush green mountains turn into rust-brown forests. In the morning the fog hangs in the valleys and the autumn sun rays slowly soften it. Enjoy this change of seasons and experience the Salzkammergut in full autumn splendour.

Three walks from three regions:
- long-distance hiking trail in the Attersee-Attergau region
- Great Almkogelround and a visit to Lake Eibensee from Mondsee
- Hike to Simonywarte in Bad Mitterndorf in the Auseerland

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.

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.

Bad Ischl

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.
