Water fun on hot summer days

Water adventure in the Eastern Styria

Seasons in the Eastern Styria: A bit of spring, autumn and winter, and a really long summer. Refreshing lakes, bathing ponds and outdoor pools provide refreshment when temperatures rise in the summer months. Even in wet weather, water not only comes from above. Numerous indoor pools and nearby thermal springs invite you to enjoy bathing all year round.

Refreshing water fun

Give me a swimming lake and I won’t need the ocean.
Dozens of small and larger bathing oases in Austria’s garden are guaranteed to cool you down in the heat of summer. Families have no need to board a plane to enjoy an exciting day on the water. The Eastern Styria has plenty to offer: Swimming lakes, paddle boat rentals, playgrounds, shady rest areas, restaurants and bathing buffets. Some lakes have a sandy beach and the Gleisdorfer Wellenbad even features surf. What more could you want?

The fascination of water

You not only want to experience the element of water in an outdoor pool or swimming lake, but from a completely different side? Then Austria’s garden is just the thing for you! On a hike through the Raabklamm, along the Wasserweg in Miesenbach or elsewhere in the Eastern Styria, you can explore the fascination of water from a whole different perspective.

Swimming in Eastern Styria

Water rinses the dust from your soul - whether outdoors or indoors in the warm indoor pool!
