The Salzkammergut region is one of the most beautiful in the heart of Austria, and on a winter holiday especially, the glorious scenery appears in its full splendour. Mountains and lakes transform into a dreamy landscape of whiteness. People have been coming to this region for generations to fill up on its energies and experience its joie de vivre.
Mountains blanketed in deep snow, fantastic powder, radiant sunshine; this is what typifies the Salzkammergut region in winter. The 4 ski areas in the vicinity provide skiing fun for all the family.
Slide softly through the snow-covered winter scenery of the Salzkammergut region on cross-country skis, or discover nature at first hand by skating. On a winter holiday here, the Wolfgangsee presents itself wonderfully for you to enjoy as you make your way along the prepared cross-country ski trails.
The Wolfgangsee Valley and the area around the lake is home to 40 km of perfectly prepared cross-country skiing trails. Breathe in the crystal clear air and enjoy the reward of the enchanting, magical scenery. There are also 15 km of cross-country ski trails with wonderful mountain views up at the Postalm area, above the lake. (Cross country skiing map & information)
