A wonderful location for an active holiday, you can take bike rides around the lake, explore the hiking trails and the Koppenbrueller cave, and go canoeing on the lake, as well as visit the charming towns of Halstatt and Bad Ischl and take a dip in the famous thermal waters of the latter.

Those looking for more of an adrenaline rush can go rafting, rock climbing and canyoning in the area.

Another local attraction is the famous 5 fingers viewing platform at Krippenstein (which can be reached from Obertraun by cable car), views from up here are magnificent, but those with a fear of heights should stay away - each platform has a glass floor!
