The Salzkammergut – a jewel in Austria
A worthy holiday destination all year round
The most beautiful lakes in the Salzkammergut are practically threaded into the landscape: in the middle, the Mondsee, to the south, Lake Wolfgang, to the east, the Attersee and to the north, the warm Irrsee. Each of them has their own charms – the Attersee as a sailing and diving paradise, the idyllic Irrsee for swimming and the Mondsee as a water sports paradise against the impressive Drachenwand.
A lake paradise against a mountain backdrop
If you look further, you can discover the Traunsee with the ceramics city of Gmunden and the Traunstein, the blue Fuschlsee near Salzburg, Lake Hallstatt with its World Heritage Site and the many, many smaller lakes – if you wanted to count all the lakes of the Salzkammergut, they would total a rich 76 lakes. In between, the landscape is separated by mountains, such as the Höllengebirge, the Tote Gebirge or the striking Schafberg with its funicular railway, which has been operated since 1893.
Sports holidays in the Salzkammergut
Thanks to its topography, the Salzkammergut has options galore in both the warm and cold seasons. Swimming, sailing, surfing, hiking, mountain biking, golf – the range is huge. Award-winning water sports centres are located directly in Mondsee, just a stone's throw away from the Hotel Krone. Those who prefer to discover the surroundings on foot will find hiking routes for every fitness level in the mountainous lake region, which formally invites you to relax outdoors. Mondsee is also surrounded by no fewer than 15 golf courses, which can all be reached within 30 minutes by car. What more could your athletic heart want?
In winter, the Salzkammergut mainly invites you to take part in gentle winter sports. Winter hiking, cross-country skiing and ice sports enjoy immense popularity and if you want to go skiing, you can reach attractive ski resorts in next to no time.
