Activities on Traunsee lake

The perfect tee shot / Golfclub Traunsee Almtal

The 18-hole course of the GC Traunsee Almtal is picturesquely located in the foothills of the Alps and is at an altitude of over 500 meters above sea level, which is why it is an ideal place to escape the fog in the lowlands, especially in autumn. The demanding course impresses with its varied architecture, which continually challenges even experienced players


The facility is rounded off by a spacious driving range, putting and chipping greens as well as a 3-hole par 3 practice facility. In the clubhouse there is a small pro shop as well as the public “Wirthaus am Kampesberg” including a bar and a viewing terrace with panoramic views - including a fantastic sunset.




Watersports and lakeside activities in Gmunden

Thanks to its location on the shores of Traunsee lake, the Seehotel Schwan is the ideal starting point for watersports. How about an invogorating swim in the crystal clear waters? Why not try your hand at kite-surfing? Or simply take it easy with a trip across the lake on the steamboat Gisela. In fact, the Traunsee is one of an amazing 76 lakes in the Salzkammergut region perfect for fishing, waterskiing, surfing and sailing.

Visitors who prefer to keep their feet dry also have plenty of attractions and activities to choose from, including mountain biking and hiking in the mountains around the lake offering fabulous views. Those who like to let technology take the strain can also head into the mountains on an electric bike or one of the many cable cars in the Salzkammergut, which also has a number of leisure centres offering ice skating, tennis, basketball, indoor golf and much more. And once you have honed your drive indoors, why not perfect your game on one of the region's ten golf courses. Another great way to explore the meadows and mountains is on horseback. The Salzkammergut truly is a haven for sports enthusiasts and everyone who loves being out and about in nature.
