Lochen on the Mattsee in Upper Austria
Lochen in summer
Summer, Sun, Lake – the summer months in Lochen are the epitome of active recuperation in and on the water. Whether swimming, boating, sailing or surfing, the nearby Mattsee has a lot to offer. Its beautiful beaches are also very popular among the locals and the comfortable temperatures of the Mattsee in early summer entice you to broad bathing enjoyment. Runners, cyclists and racing bikers really enjoy the scenic routes in the Salzburg Lake District. Around the Mattsee, quaint inns and cosy coffee houses await pleasure-seeking guests.

Lochen in winter
When Mother Holle blesses the Salzburg Lake District landscape with fresh snow and the banks of the Mattsee freeze, then Lochen and its local nature can best be explored with a winter walk. Enjoy the pre-Christmas mood, visit a thought-provoking Advent market, experience a real Devils’ run and enjoy winter at its most beautiful – that’s how beautiful a winter holiday is in Lochen.
