Bathing Lakes in Lower Austria

Several lakes serve as backdrop for regional festivals in Lower Austria. Take Lunzer See, for example, which hosts the annual "Wellenklänge". Or the Herrensee and its "Schrammel.Klang.Festival".

Lunzer See

Quiet forests surround the romantic Lunzer See, which is the largest lake in Lower Austria. Daredevils can take up the challenge of the diving tower in the swimming area, while those who have a somewhat more leisurely day in mind can stroll around the entire lake on foot, or circle it in a rented boat. Right next to the beach you will find a shell-shaped stage where the Wellenklänge festival is held every year. And all year round there is a wonderful lakeside restaurant with a terrace and view out over the lake.

The Herrensee is one of the largest lakes in the Waldviertel. In Litschau you will find a swimming area, playgrounds, outdoor pool, beach volleyball, boat rentals and a restaurant. And once a year the Herrensee plays host to the Schrammel.Klang.Festival.
