The water of Salzburg’s lakes
The roaring streams, raging waterfalls, sparkling springs and lakes that glitter in the sun in their still grandeur invite you to take a plunge into their cooling waters. In the Salzburg Lake District, the Fuschlsee Holiday Region and the Wolfgangsee lake you encounter water wherever you go and experience how versatile and wonderful this precious and life-giving element can be. Hikers march to the desolate mountain lakes and indulge in romantic picnics, still coves invite for wild swims and Mattsee lake lets visitors be inspired by the life’s work of one of the greatest engineers of the 20th century. Followed by gliding across the lake with one of the locally made boats and watching the fisherman at Wallersee lake do their work. Because, ultimately, the water is what makes these regions what they are — a true paradise.
