Nature meets culture – Your holiday in Steinbach am Attersee
Good things come in small packages! And Steinbach is proof of it. As a guest in Steinbach am Attersee, you become part of the village. People know each other here and help each other out. And at the same time, the small village offers a host of attractions and experiences, some bigger cities only dream of.
The essence of nature – alpinist village and member of the Nature Park
Due to its location at the foot of the Höllengebirge mountain range, the mountains have always played a major role in Steinbach am Attersee. Among other characteristics, this location contributed to the distinction of the village as alpinist village and member village of the Nature Park Attersee-Traunsee. Next to the well-known summits of the Höllengebirge mountains, there is a via ferrata up the Mahdlgupf, the bouldering area Forstamt or the 50 m cascade Nixenfall.
In the course of an exciting project of the alpinist villages, twenty recreational loungers have currently been manufactured and placed in the alpinist village of Steinbach am Attersee at various vantage points. These double loungers, made by local carpenters, offer plenty of room for our guests as well as for all our habitants to rest and relax.
In addition, the community Steinbach received on 26 June 2019 the "Lichtschutzpreis" for "water, light, nature and starry sky" in a special category. This price will be given to companies and communities who focus on a harmonic balance between humankind and nature.
Back down from the mountains, dip into cool waters
Once you are back from up high, countless possibilities are waiting for you at the lakeshore. Different diving stations – like the notorious ‘schwarze Brücke‘ (black bridge) attract divers. If you prefer to stay at the surface, we suggest you go to the lido Solarstrandbad. A large grass beach, a baby pool and a heated pool with a long water slide guarantee lots of fun. Still, we clearly prefer swimming our rounds in the crystal-clear lake waters.
The choice of accommodation is crucial for every holiday. In Steinbach am Attersee everybody will find accommodation for his taste and budget. Enjoy the hospitality of the people of Steinbach at our B&Bs, hotels, farms and campsites.
At our restaurants, we serve culinary delights from the region and fresh fish from the lake. Our craft brewery Bierschmiede will make the heart of every beer lover beat a little faster. Cheers!
Culture for all
Gustav Mahler once chose Steinbach am Attersee as his summer retreat. Some places in the village are witness of these days gone by. This is especially true for the annual Gustav Mahler Festival. But our calendar of events is quite busy with a mix of events from local costumes groups all the way to philharmonic concerts during the Philharmonische Wochen in Steinbach.
Steinbach am Attersee in the winter
The winter is a quiet season on Lake Attersee. The small family ski resort Hochlecken and the flood-lit toboggan run on the old route Großalmstraße make Steinbach am Attersee worth a trip even in the coldest season of the year.
