Mountains & a gentle breeze over the lake

The 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.

Fabulous winter break at the lake

Wrap up warm and take a winter walk along the lakeshore or explore the picture postcard winter scenery on cross-country skis. Altmünster and its surroundings offer outstanding skiing and snowboarding for people of all ages and ambitions. The Hochlecken ski area is particularly suitable for families with children, as is the Kasberg family ski resort in Grünau im Almtal, which is within a 30-minute drive. In addition, there are 40 kilometers of slopes suitable for both novice skiers and pros, and a terrific terrain park.
