Holiday Village near Salzburg City
The holiday village of Fuschl am See lies at 670 metres above sea level and has a population of around 1300. This idyllic village is the connecting link between the county of Salzburg with the Salzkammergut Lake District, it is just 20 km from the Mozart City of Salzburg and about 30 km from the charming spa town of Bad Ischl.
Fuschl am See offers a wide range of leisure activities and cultural sights in both summer and winter. If you enjoy exploring your holiday region under your own steam then Fuschl is the ideal starting point, the local buses run regularly and stop right outside the hotel. The lakeside promenade is just a short stroll from the hotel offering a spectacular view across the entire lake and of the surrounding mountain panorama: Enjoy the magnificent sunsets from your balcony.
The lake covers an area of 267 hectares and is nestled between the two villages of Hof bei Salzburg and Fuschl am See. At its deepest point the lake boasts a depth of 70 metres. The water is fantastically clean, is crystal clear and is of drinking water quality. The 11 km of shores surrounding the lake are unspoilt and for the most part have been left in their natural state.
Numerous public beaches and secluded bays, ideal for swimming, are dotted around the lake so if you do decide to walk round the lake, don’t forget your swimsuit! In addition to hiking, and cycling you can also relax by hiring a boat or with a few tranquil hours of fishing.
Gliding almost silently across the lake in the electric-powered, traditional wooden boat is an absolute must and is a highlight for young and old alike. To round off the perfect family holiday the summer toboggan run is open daily (weather permitting), activity farms can be visited and on request we can also offer guided nature-trails for the whole family.
