Water paradise

For sparkling refreshment and quiet pleasure

Turquoise shimmering water that is so clear that you can count the stones at the bottom. Whether it’s Lake Fuschlsee, Lake Wolfgangsee, Obertrumer Lake, Lake Wallersee or Lake Mattsee, SalzburgerLand has a very special density of wonderful, refreshing lakes. In the nearby lake district, close to the city of Salzburg, or in the Salzkammergut, pure, alpine waters attract bathers just as magically as paddlers or sailors. For having fun together on and in the water - that's what we live for!

Have you ever experienced the sunset on a lonely summer evening on the shores of a mountain lake?  If yes, then you know just how much magic is in the air here. The blood-red sun is reflected millions of times in the rippling waves, throws the last tentative warm rays and dips the sky in this almost unrealistic colour play.

SalzburgerLand is truly blessed with water in all its splendid variety. There is hardly anyone who does not feel at home at a place on the rivers, streams and lakes. Not only through its beauty, but also through the things you can experience in, on and around the water entices you in. In summer, sunbathers populate the many lakes, beaches and baths, compete at beach volleyball and enjoy the ease of just being.

Outside on the water, sailors and windsurfers romp around on the waves and allow themselves to be driven over the waves by the wind. When the sun goes down slowly, the time of the fishermen begins. Even if you are not an angler yourself, you will still be delighted by the culinary delights that come from the local waters straight onto the dishes of restaurants and inns.

If you want to feel the whole primal violence of the water on your own body, then a step into the wild water with rafting, kayaking, or canyoning is just right.

Or would you like to experience what happens when an originally quiet stream eats into the rock below over millions of years? Then you absolutely have to pay a visit to the gorges and waterfalls in the mountains of SalzburgerLand.

Whether you are looking for action in the water, pure relaxation on the beaches and in the baths, or the experience of wild water: in the water paradise of SalzburgerLand everyone will find their own personal space in the cool waters.

Krimml Waterfalls Impressive, mystical and unique: with a total height of 380 m across three cascades, the Krimml Waterfalls in Salzburg's Pinzgau are an overwhelming holiday experience.
