Spend your holiday by the lake in Salzburger Land

Holiday at Lake Fuschl

Lake Fuschl is the lifeline of the region and offers plenty of space for activity and relaxation. In the summer months in particular, Lake Fuschl impresses with a colour spectrum of many shades of blue and green. It is considered a real insider tip for lake holidays in Austria far beyond the borders of Salzburger Land.

Families love the four public bathing areas on Lake Fuschl. Some appreciate the comfort of the Fuschlsee bathing area right in the centre of Fuschl am See, others love the long wooden jetty at the natural bathing beach in Hof bei Salzburg, as well as the Stöllinger and Wesenauer bathing areas on the southern shore of the lake. You can discover many other bathing spots along the lakeshore on a tour around Lake Fuschl.

Holiday at Hintersee

At just under 750 metres above sea level, the Hintersee can almost be described as a mountain lake. Crystal-clear water, freely accessible shores and two lidos provide a balanced offer for a holiday by the lake in Austria.

Hintersee is nestled in the mountains of the Osterhorn group in a valley basin and is perfect for those seeking peace and quiet and nature lovers. Hintersee is also a popular destination for activities in and around the water in spring and autumn. The small mountain lake has a special charm for hikers, especially in the winter months.
