Long Distance Hiking Trail Attersee-Attergau

It doesn't matter where you start or conclude your roughly 90 km tour around Lake Attersee and through the Attergau region – the journey is the reward! And if 90 km are not enough there are connection possibilites to the Salzkammergut long distance trail called BergeSeen Trail. The BergeSeen Trail - a unique long distance trail from lake to lake.

You'll be hiking 'up, down and around' ('aufi ... owi ... umi' in local dialect) in four (or five) stages. You will wander through rolling hills, forests suffused with light, well-groomed endless meadows, cultivated landscapes in the Attersee-Traunsee Natural Park, catching countless breathtaking views over Lake Attersee glinting in the sunlight. Walk at your own pace, step by step, and let your mind wander. Take a break to watch the appeasing alpacas, observe the busy bees or let your gaze wander over the scenery at the 'Kronberg Platzl' viewpoint.
