The Salzburg Lake District
The Salzburg Lake District is situated only 20 minutes by car from the world-famous Mozart city of Salzburg and offers our guests a diversity of natural beauty. Four pretty lakes (the Wallersee, Mattsee, Grabensee and Obertrumersee) with crystal clear waters are embedded in an undulating countryside amidst well-kept meadows and forests. Our lakeside beaches, boot hire and sailing schools are a joy.
Our area is particularly attractive to families and active seniors , who can make the most of our exceptional network of cycling and walking trails!
There is a wide variety of different cycling tours and many cultural events,such as classical concerts, jazz,or traditional music, in many resorts. The area also offers exceptional culinary specialities in our traditional local pubs and restaurants.
„What did I really like? – the soft, green hills, the blue water of the lakes and then the Alps in the background! absolutely beautiful!“ – so commented Frau Maier from Düsseldorf. „ We enjoyed walks around the lakes, - it‘s reasonably flat, wonderful views everywhere on the way and pretty villages, where you can take a break. The walk around the Grabensee was our daughter, Jana’s, favourite, - even the dog, Jamie, enjoyed it!“
Herbert Maier is an avid cyclist. „ Whilst my family enjoyed lazing at the beach,I prefered to cycle around the lake. - Ideal biking area!“
The traditional Salzburg food in the local garden restaurants is super tasty – apple strudel, pancake soup, roast pork or dumplings – an absolute feast!
