Bathing Lakes in Salzburg

185 lakes adorn the landscape across the Salzkammergut region, through mountain valleys and on distant peaks. SalzburgerLand's lakes all have one thing in common: the extraordinary quality of their water.

Lake Wolfgang

The 11km long Lake Wolfgang is SalzburgerLand’s largest lake. In addition to the two main resorts, St. Wolfgang and St. Gilgen, it has Strobl on its eastern shores, a pleasant town offering numerous hotels and campsites. Thanks to its crystal clear, warm waters, Lake Wolfgang is extremely popular with swimmers, families and scuba divers in

Lake Fuschl

The quaint Hintersee and the famous Lake Fuschl with its 4 public bathing beaches are both set amid the scenic landscapes of the Salzkammergut. The pretty Fuschlsee region is within easy reach of Salzburg and offers plenty of sports and leisure facilities, as well as an old castle overlooking the lake.

Wallersee, Obertrummer See, Mattsee

The Salzburg Lake District comprises the warm Wallersee and the three Trumer Lakes, which all offer good swimming, walking and cycling. Water sports are also a big draw here.

Zeller See

Zeller See enjoys a picturesque location near the Nationalpark Hohe Tauern and amid mountains. It offers a wide variety of water sports including sailing, water skiing and windsurfing. The beautiful resort of Zell am See-Kaprun is located on the lake’s western bank and it is here that you will find vast accommodation options.


This idyllic moor lake is nestled in Lungau, the southernmost region of SalzburgerLand. Thanks to is location at more than 1000m above sea level, the 10m deep Prebersee offers a refreshing dip for hikers throughout the summer months amidst stunning scenery and rare plants.
