Triathlon is becoming more and more popular and is not only trendy among competitive athletes.

We would like to convince you of the excellent triathlon training conditions in the Fuschlseeregion and invite you to get to know the racing bike region at Lake Fuschl.
"Don't make every round count. Make every lap count!"
With the sports of swimming, cycling and running, triathletes take care of exactly what many people lack in their everyday lives, regular exercise. In addition to the exercise aspect, triathlon is also about the sporting challenge - against the competition, against oneself or simply against one's own inner pig.
Both at the Fuschlsee and at the Hintersee you can manage a comprehensive swim training. With a length of 4.2 km and a width of 800 m, you can easily complete all the distances of the triathlon variants at Lake Fuschlsee. The smaller Hintersee, with its length of 1.4 km and width of 700 m, also offers good training conditions for the triathlon discipline of swimming. From the end of April to the end of September, the outdoor pool of the Fuschlseebad is also available for swim training.
