This is a place you will always want to come back to. Family-run hotel with the direct access to the lake for sun bathing and relaxation, pure water for swimming, free boats and packed lunch for a romantic picnic in the lake, top class Austrian cuisine, as well as access to extensive hiking routes. Enjoy your daily meals on the lake-side terrace with a spectacular view of the emerald green lake.
Board basis options available
This enchanting village lies on the shores of a tranquil lake surrounded by pine clad hills and gentle mountains. Swimming or rowing is a pleasure in its crystal clear waters, especially as no motor boats are allowed. The village is a marvellous centre for walking with some wonderful woodland strolls, and a lovely path around the lake and some tougher hikes up the Schober Mountain which overlooks the village. It is also a great base from which to explore the Lakes region. St. Gilgen (4 miles away) is easily accessible by bus for boat trips on Lake Wolfgang and further walking opportunities. There are various local events held in the village throughout the summer, and not to be missed is an alfresco evening drink or meal, watching the glorious sunsets over Lake Fuschl.
