Holidays Altmünster

Mountains & a gentle breeze over the lake

The charming holiday resort of Altmünster stretches along the shore of Austria’s deepest lake: Traunsee. Located in the northern Salzkammergut area in the Province of Upper Austria, the crystal-clear lake makes a prime destination for a summer holiday for families and swimming enthusiasts, and for lovers of water sports in general. Sailing and wind surfing are highly popular leisure activities thanks to favorable wind conditions. In addition, Altmünster features numerous trails and routes for walking, hiking and mountain biking in the foothills of the Alps – along with lovely places to relax and unwind. Those with a soft spot for vintage cars will love the Oldtimermuseum, while the Eggerhaus allows an insight into the history of local architecture and the housing conditions in former times.
In winter the family-friendly Hochlecken ski area offers immaculate slopes for skiers of all ages and ambitions. The snow-covered winter scenery lends itself to peaceful nature exploration along well-groomed Nordic trails.

Summer at Lake Traun

The Solarbad Altmünster is the preferred destination of families, not least thanks to the special children’s pool and the shady playground. A harmonious blend of relaxation and action is offered at the “Esplanade” water sports center: Try rafting, canyoning, diving, wakeboarding or water skiing!
86 kilometers of trails and footpaths for walking and hiking wind their ways through the picturesque mountain scenery and offer stunning views and a hands-on nature experience. The Altmünster-Gmundnerberg loop trail, for instance, is packed with natural gems and quaint mountain restaurants. Have a lunch stop at the Gmundnerberghaus to enjoy cheese dumplings served in a bowl of bouillon or homemade strudel specialties.
Another highlight is the Aurachtal cycling trail starting right on the lakeshore. Altmünster is also home to several equestrian centers and bridleways, including the Panoramareitweg Höllengebirge –Traunsee renowned for its gorgeous scenery and the availability of resting places and food stops for riders and their horses.
Take a step back in time and learn more about the early days of mobility at the Museum of Vintage Cars and Bicycles. Looking for a special souvenir? – Dress up in historic clothes and have a picture taken with one of the cars on display. The Salzkammergut Tierweltmuseum showcases chamois, badgers, antelopes, rhinos, tigers and is highly popular among families.

Fabulous winter break at the lake

Wrap up warm and take a winter walk along the lakeshore or explore the picture postcard winter scenery on cross-country skis. Altmünster and its surroundings offer outstanding skiing and snowboarding for people of all ages and ambitions. The Hochlecken ski area is particularly suitable for families with children, as is the Kasberg family ski resort in Grünau im Almtal, which is within a 30-minute drive. In addition, there are 40 kilometers of slopes suitable for both novice skiers and pros, and a terrific terrain park.
