Experience Salzkammergut

Adventures in nature for families

Salzkammergut is one of the loveliest and most family-friendly regions in Austria with lakes, mountains, meadows and woodlands. And the Family Hotel Bachmanngut is right in the thick of it all. In summer water fun awaits families with children in the turquoise blue waters of Wolfgangsee, on the hiking paths through the enchanted gorges and magical woodlands, way up to the summits of the Schafberg and its fantastic views. In winter Mother Hulda transforms Wolfgangsee into a winter fairytale.

Tip: Those of you who don’t prefer things to be so sporty are best to avail of the rack-and-pinion railway facility, or to go and explore the mountains using the region's cable cars.

Fun & activities whatever the weather

Whether sunshine or a rainy day – boredom is not an option here. Since the region provides a variety of activities whatever the weather, throughout the year.
