Austrian Lake District

Affectionately known as the Austrian Lake District, Salzkammergut is one of Austria's premiere holiday destinations, featuring crystal clear lakes, picturesque hillsides, and quaint yet fantastic villages.
    Those travelers with a penchant for athleticism best utilize these majestic grounds—with seemingly endless opportunities at every turn—including mountain biking or hiking on one of many trails (for all levels of endurance), swimming, skiing, the list doesn't end. There is even an opportunity for the adventurous traveler to soar 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) over the valley with an available paragliding site, the Krippenstein.
    Another worthwhile destination in the Lake District is the Dachsteinwelterbe Cave World at Obertraun, with three natural show caves, going as far as 3,200 feet (975 meters) deep, the three ice-caves are amongst the largest in the world and are considered to be one of Austria's most important natural sites.
    With a plethora of modern amenities and resorts to accommodate almost any need, Salzkammergut is complete with a healthy selection of easily accessible housing, shops, bars, and restaurants.

Practical Info

The most efficient way to get in is through the historic town of Hallstatt. Buses and trains are both cheaper available options, although if you are coming from anywhere other than Salzburg, these modes of transport will require changeovers.
