This is where your next holiday begins...
A warm welcome
The picturesque town centre with its monastery, castle and lake promenade invites you to stroll, linger and enjoy. The market square is the starting point for cycling and hiking tours and for trips by vintage car.
The lake: Even though you can't get enough of Mattsee, it offers much more than breathtaking views. Swim, slide or sail to your heart's content, have "a coffee with a view", sit on a bench and unwind ... Just do what feels good to you.
Mattsee welcomes you!
When you look down from above on a sunny day over the village with its blue lake, you will be thrilled ...
First, you might want to sit down on a bench by the little fountain in the market square ... And then continue in the direction of the castle. Because this picturesque building on the Schlossberg magically attracts the eye. The summer residence of the Salzburg prince archbishops until the 17th century ... is now used as a café-bistro. Or as a venue for the "Diabelli Summer", the Leonardo Art Academy and atmospheric weddings.
Fancy a drive in a smart vintage car? Want to experience technology up close and personal? Then you shouldn't miss the fahr(T)raum! On the site of a former shoe factory with its unique industrial charm, you'll find hands-on technology that will delight visitors of all ages. In addition to the museum, historic racing cars, tractors, aeroplanes ... you could - with or without children - take part in exciting races on the Carrera track or try out the vintage car simulators.
Do you like sightseeing from the water? Then make yourself comfortable on the "Seenland" ... and enjoy. By the way, the Mattseer lido has a tradition: opened in 1928, it has been largely preserved in its original structure. But Mattsee is family-friendly - so they have added a water slide, diving tower and volleyball courts. In the Weyer Bay there is the historic "Bajuwaren-Gehöft", an adventure playground, a tennis court, a miniature golf course and a Kneipp facility.
