Winter magic in the Attersee-Attergau holiday region

Romantic and varied - this is how the Attersee-Attergau region presents itself during the winter months. Explore the region on a snowshoe hike in the great outdoors or make your mark on the cross-country ski trails against the backdrop of the Höllengebirge mountains. Even skiers don't miss out in the small but fine ski areas.



Experience a romantic sleigh ride through the snow-covered Gosau Valley.

Wrapped in warm blankets, across meadows and through forests, it's a romantic walk to the Blinking Deer.

Once there, you have the opportunity to strengthen yourself with a snack and warming drinks before returning to the starting point.

Winter at Mondsee and Irrsee: Icy times

The waterfall in Kreuzstein, at the southern end of the Mondsee, becomes a special natural spectacle in winter. When the temperature drops below zero, the entire waterfall freezes and turns into a wall of ice, which is an excellent photo opportunity. The path to the waterfall is short and easy and can also be walked with small children. (Starting point: Landesbadeplatz on the southern shore of Lake Mondsee/Kreuzstein).


continue reading

It's no less icy in our ice rink. Ice skating courses are offered there, you can rent your private "ice time" or play curling or hockey with friends. The right footwear is of course also available. Mondsee ice rink sports center 1 5310 Tiefgraben am Mondsee Mobile +43 664 4702874 Email Web

A winter like back then


Away from the large ski areas, mass tourism and après-ski hustle and bustle, the living space around the two lakes Mondsee and Irrsee offers everything for a relaxing winter.

When the snow covers our landscape like a smooth, white sheet, small crystals sparkle on the fields and the sunlight is reflected on the surface of the lake, there are many reasons to be happy here at Mondsee and Irrsee.

continue reading

A lonely winter or snowshoe hike with breathtaking views of one of our lakes, a schnapps as the target water for curling followed by a roast in the Rein, animal hiking fun with fluffy companions or tobogganing on our floodlit natural toboggan run. Afterwards we relax in the outdoor "hot pot" with a glass of sparkling wine before we spend the winter day at the tiled stove in one of our rustic inns. Ice stock sport, tobogganing and a dip in the hot pot Ice stock sport and tobogganing under a starry sky are among our favorite pastimes in the cold season. Ice stock sport in particular is simply part of a winter at Mondsee and Irrsee, and players are always wanted for a sociable stick game. The ice stock can be borrowed, you learn the rules of the game in less than five minutes and with the right technique (or the right target water) you will definitely hit the target, which we call Daube or Hås! The Hochsernerhof snack station high above the Irrsee offers a particularly original warm-up method, because here you can jump into the warm hot pot under the open sky after your ice stock or toboggan run. The champagne will of course be taken along.

Enjoy a wonderful winter landscape in the Attersee-Attergau region on a leisurely winter walk. We would like to point out that the hiking trails are not winter cleared and that you use them at your own risk.

Star-Highlights in October

In October there are many things to discover in the night sky: For example, on October 8 the Draconids will sparkle in the northwestern sky with about 10 to 15 shooting stars per hour. Or on October 29th, Venus in the evening sky will shine clearly.
In keeping with this, the Sternenpark offers guided tours under the motto “From Chandelier to Night owls – Light from until the end of the night”, during which the habitat night is encountered without dazzling lamps.

The dates for the nightly guided tour – registration is absolutely necessary!

Welcome on the treetops

At Traunsee it doesn’t take much to feel great. Those who still strive for something higher can take the Grünberg cable car and leave behind all too familiar things. Once you reach the top the treetop path is only the beginning. You will walk 1.4 kilometres on safe boards at a height of up to 21 metres above ground, in the middle of the treetops and enjoy the stunning view over Gmunden, the forest, the mountains and the lake. As an encore the 39-metres high observation tower and a 75-metres long tunnel slide are awaiting you. For the latter you should already be older than 6 years.

Alone at the lake

Seek and ye shall find. The romantic bay between Fürberg at the Wolgangsee and the Falkensteinwand. The real hurdle is that the way always takes you across the water. Once you have arrived you will feel like the chosen one(s) and enjoy not only the solitude but also the Caribbean colours of the lake.

Bad Ischl

Imperial Rise

Highnesses are at liberty to choose, even the hiking trails. That’s why Bad Ischl is proud of the Kaiser Jubiläumsweg. It was created in 1898 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph and ever since leads to the family-friendly Hoisnradalm in 1.5 hours. Those who want to discover the habitats of endangered species while hiking, can chose the “Naturlehrpfad” with its 12 digital information points. The path also starts at the Jubiläumsweg and has a length of 11 kilometres, duration: 4.5 hours. Afterwards you will be wiser and impressed by the nature in the Salzkammergut.

Looking at world heritage

Sometimes all it takes to gain new perspectives is changing altitude. This is also the case with the UNESCO World Heritage Site Hallstatt. Once you have explored the town centre, you can choose to get a new superlative view. No matter whether you are sporty and equipped with sturdy shoes or prefer it comfortably and take the Salzbergseilbahn – the climb to 360 meters above the village is worthwhile. Here you will have your own spectacular entrance: at the “Skywalk” World Heritage View. When stepping onto the platform the majestic Dachstein massif builds up in front and Lake Hallstatt lies glittering at your feet. Seen in this light Hallstatt presents itself from a completely new side. And even if everything is 100% safe – a little thrill is surely added due to the height.

Gliding over glacier lakes

Experiencing what the ice needed millions of years for in only 80 minutes: crossing the Salza reservoir on a boat. Embedded between the mighty Grimming and the Kernetgebirge lies this fjord-like blue jewel in the middle of the nature reserve. Those who find their way from the nearby Bad Mitterndorf immediately feel the fascination of untouched beauty. Take a seat on board of a rustic wooden boat and explore the depths, waterfalls and romantic bays carved out by the glacier.

The elixir of life

Not all water is the same. This can especially be noticed when you enjoy the excellent water quality of the Salzkammergut lakes. But what else is it capable of? The easiest way to find out is on foot when hiking in the Attersee Nature Park. At the “Wasser Roas” between Weyregg and the Bramosen you can learn station by station how many days it takes a drop of Attersee water to reach the Black Sea, why the Attersee suddenly turns turquoise blue in the summer months and how many juicy plums it takes to fill a shot glass with schnapps. And don’t forget to bring a bottle of water from the tourist office in Weyregg. Sip by sip the blue element gets a completely new meaning.

Find them all!

How to capture the natural aroma of a unique region? It is easy: just take the oldest nature reserve in the Salzkammergut, a little wanderlust and a smart app. All your senses will find themselves in an exciting kaleidoscope of fauna and flora worthy of protection. The smartphone only takes on the role of a clever companion who explains the sights in more detail - the natural curiosity remains your guide. By the way, in the Mondsee-Irsee region alone, over 1,200 plant species, 200 bird species, tens of thousands of insect species, mammals, mosses and shells have been found. How many can you find in one day?

Hollerdrio on the alp

Fabulous 30 cultivated alpine huts and a 150 km long hiking trail network await you in the Fuschelsee region. Everything is possible here, from the easy circuit hike to the tingling jump into a mountain lake or to the challenging summit climb. The reward is always a culinary highlight from the regional cuisine: like Kasnocken, Kaspressknödel or Bauernkrapfen. At the Holleralmen you can toast to a successfully completed hike with fresh elderflower juice. Or treat yourself to one of the wonderful elder desserts before you move on. There is still so much to see in this beautiful area.
