The Salzkammergut region

Bathing Lakes around the World Heritage region

Along the Salzkammergutweg, the most famous Upper Austrian lakes and warm thermal springs of drinking water quality line up like beautiful pearls on a string, surrounded by a stunning mountain backdrop. The Salzkammergut area comprises a number of beautiful lakes boasting water of premium quality: Attersee, Mondsee, Traunsee, Wolfgangsee, Altausseer See, to name but a few. The lakeshores have largely been left untouched and therefore offer a peaceful and unspoiled environment for sunbathing and relaxing. However, the Salzkammergut area offers many culinary and cultural highlights as well: Take Bad Ischl with its imperial splendor, for instance, or charming St. Gilgen, or the lovely towns of Wolfgangsee, Strobl and Gmunden. Activities in, on and by the lakes include all kinds of water sports, walking and hiking, Nordic walking, running and playing golf. With 4,150 kilometers of way-marked routes along lakes, alleys and educational trails and high up in the mountains, Salzkammergut is indeed a hiker’s paradise. In addition, there are several places of inspiration, called Glücksplätze, which even enhance the relaxation factor. Cycling and mountain biking enthusiasts area offered all kinds of routes and trails to suit their individual needs and ambitions.
