With its clear turquoise waters that reflect the beautiful Alpine nature, the Attersee is spell-bounding. On the long-distance trail, you will hike in five stages across lush green meadows in the north, steep rock faces in the south, and through forests flooded with light – the Attergau is a hiking paradise. Discover pretty villages, rural idylls, and a world of unique plants with countless orchids.

The 60 miles (100 kilometer) long trail Attersee-Attergau leads you around the Attersee in five stages. The start and finish of each stage is in a pretty spot on the shores of the lake, where you can dip your feet after the hike. From the shore, each stage takes you over small and large mountain peaks that surround the lake – breathtaking views are guaranteed.

As the largest inland lake in Austria, the Attersee is a popular excursion and holiday destination. As such, you will find many mountain chalets, accommodation options and public transport. Nevertheless, you will find plenty of places where you can enjoy the view in peace and recharge your batteries, and we will show you where.
