Mountains & a gentle breeze over the lakeThe charming holiday resort of Altmünster stretches along the shore of Austria’s deepest lake: Traunsee. Located in the northern Salzkammergut area in the Province of Upper Austria, the crystal-clear lake makes a prime destination for a summer holiday for families and swimming enthusiasts, and for lovers of water sports in general. Sailing and wind surfing are highly popular leisure activities thanks to favorable wind conditions. In addition, Altmünster features numerous trails and routes for walking, hiking and mountain biking in the foothills of the Alps – along with lovely places to relax and unwind. Those with a soft spot for vintage cars will love the Oldtimermuseum, while the Eggerhaus allows an insight into the history of local architecture and the housing conditions in former times.
In winter the family-friendly Hochlecken ski area offers immaculate slopes for skiers of all ages and ambitions. The snow-covered winter scenery lends itself to peaceful nature exploration along well-groomed Nordic trails.
