Water sports and bathing in Ausseerland-Salzkammergut

Jump into the cool water, or be active on/in the water of the crystal-clear lakes in Ausseerland: summer visitors get their money's worth with water sports and bathing.

Stand-up paddling in Ausseerland

Paddling has enjoyed great popularity for quite some time. No surprise: on board you can enjoy the natural landscape, the fascinating mountains and the crystal-clear water of the lakes at your own pace.

The right technique can be learned in a short time. Beginners gain their first SuP experience in introductory courses. With a little practice, they can explore the lakes in Ausseerland together.

Participants really work out on the stand-up paddle. How convenient that refreshment is only a jump away.

Sailing on the Grundlsee

On the balcony of the Styrian Yacht Club Grundlsee, members wait for suitable wind conditions for spontaneous sailing parties. On appointment, the club also opens its doors to visitors.

Surfing at the Grundlsee

When the wind blows from the right direction, surfers are drawn to Grundlsee. Especially in spring and autumn there are plenty of good surfing days. The reason for this is cold north-westerly currents, when the lake invites you to surf.

Dives in the deep blue lake Altaussee 

Diving into Lake Altaussee makes the dreams of passionate divers come true: in the deep blue water you can discover waterweed, stoneworts and even the odd lake or rainbow trout. When the weather is good, divers can also see shipwrecks and old, sunken rowing boats.

Bathing fun in Ausseerland

Water lovers can cool off at the lakes, as well as in the outdoor pools in Bad Mitterndorf and Tauplitz. Sun seekers enjoy the fantastic weather on the spacious sunbathing areas.
