The Mondseeland – holidays in the Salzkammergut
A unique leisure paradise between Mondsee and Irrsee
Welcome to the Mondseeland – one of the most beautiful spots far and wide. Here you will find culture, history, sports possibilities against a stunning backdrop, culinary pleasures, Austrian hospitality and plenty of recuperation options all in one place.
History, culture and a holiday region in the heart of Austria
The Mondseeland was inhabited as early as approx. 4000 years ago, as evidenced by the museums in Mondsee. Since 2011, the Pile Dwellings, which can be recognised as being significantly below the water surface, have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Mondsee is located before the gates of the festival city of Salzburg - where the Salzburg Jedermann is performed every summer. But we too have a Jedermann worth mentioning and seeing in Mondsee. This is traditionally performed on the open-air stage in Mondsee's Karlsgarten in July and August.
In winter, the Lake Wolfgang Advent forms a unique attraction. The Advent market in Mondsee, however, is also romantic and tranquil, and pitches its stalls on the square in front of the basilica.

The natural jewel of the Mondseeland
The Mondseeland is dominated by the two swimming lakes Mondsee and Irrsee. The latter is the warmest of all the Salzkammergut lakes with temperatures of up to 27 degrees and is completely protected by law. It goes without saying that athletes and active holidaymakers will get pure enjoyment in a natural landscape as glorious and diverse as the Mondseeland. Pleasure hiking, mountain hiking, cycling, mountain biking, all kinds of water sports, swimming, golf: the Mondsee region fulfils all wishes.
Recuperation seekers and culture fans, mountain enthusiasts and water lovers: the diversity of the Salzkammergut and the Mondseeland are probably what make them so attractive.
