The Salzkammergut Lake District: A Natural Treasure Chest
The natural and cultural landscape of the Salzkammergut is as unique as it is ancient.
Diverse and full of surprises, visitors to the Salzkammergut will discover mountains and lakes, airy deciduous woods and dense coniferous forests, gleaming mountain peaks and fragrant mountain pastures. Each season has its own special character.
Spring is light green, lucid shades, colourful flowers and voluptuously blooming orchards. During the day the pleasant temperatures are ideal for hiking and sport, the evenings air is brisk and cool.
In the summer it is often hot, but seldom oppressively so. A cool breeze from the lake or the mountains has a refreshing and cooling effect. And then – dive into one of the lakes, into waters of drinking quality. You can also cool down in the soothing shade of the now dense deciduous forest and enjoy a few warm, evening hours outdoors.
Autumn is the festival season: The landscape is decorated in the most beautiful, natural colours and the locals give their thanks for the rich harvest at numerous festivals and celebrations. The light becomes softer, it’s the ideal time of year to explore the mountains in the Salzkammergut Lake District.
The winter offers snow-covered pleasure, with wonderful off-piste skiing, fabulous slopes in the mountains and a gentle horse-drawn sleigh ride in the valley. The days are shorter and the evening is spent telling stories in front of a flickering open fire.
