The Upper Austria/Salzkammergut region
The stunningly beautiful Salzkammergut region is an ideal holiday destination. Conveniently located close to Salzburg with its excellent air, rail & motorway connections, the area provides the perfect base for an active, cultural or simply relaxing break.
The area has innumerable picturesque lakes & historic villages to explore, & for those keen to travel slightly further afield, Berchtesgaden, Chiemsee, the Hohe Tauern mountains & even the Czech Republic are very easy day trips. There's plenty to interest children, with fairytale castles, ice caves, adventure parks & much more close by.
No visit to the area would be complete without a day or two in wonderful Salzburg, whether to follow in the footsteps of W A Mozart, to seek out those Sound of Music locations or just to visit some of the cities other many attractions.
Whilst a car is a bonus, the local Postbus service is both reasonable priced & exceptionally efficient & can be used to explore the area. The Wolfgangsee shipping company offers a number of ticket options to explore the lake & hop on/ hop off the boat as you do so.
Several local operators offer daytrips to attractions near & further afield & these can easily be booked whilst in the village.
The St Gilgen / Laim area
The apartment is a pleasant 10 minute walk into the centre of St Gilgen. The “picture postcard” village centre has a host of old buildings, many of which are elaborately decorated with traditional frescos. It also boasts a wide range of shops (including 2 good sized supermarkets), restaurants, cafes, banks & other facilities. In addition, there are numerous lakeside swimming areas & several children’s play areas.
Cycles (both standard & electrically assisted) are available for rent & provide access to the well maintained flat cycle tracks around the lake as well as the more challenging (& well marked) mountain tracks. The apartment has plenty of secure storage should you wish to being you own bicycle.
The lakeside promenade is one of the docking points for the Wolfgangsee shipping line, from where St Wolfgang & Strobl are easily reached after a short cruise. It is also home to many local water-sports, including waterskiing & motorboat hire. There are numerous bathing beaches around the lake & swimmers will be pleasantly surprised at the warm temperature of the water (not to mention its drinking water quality).
The village is also home a 'Mozart Museum' (situated in the house where Wolfgang Amadeus' mother was born) together with several other museums of local interest. In the evenings during July & August, the village regularly hosts a number of bands & orchestras playing concerts in the picturesque village lakeside gardens & village square.
The village is the perfect base for walkers & hikers. All local trails are extremely well marked & most feature picturesque cafes (so you are never too far from the next “kaffe & kuchen”!) Routes vary from the straightforward & fairly flat to challenging & near vertical! Walking maps are available locally & are very easy to follow. For some of the most stunning views in the whole of the Salzkammergut region, take the cable-car to the top of the Zwölferhorn Mountain, from where a number of walks are possible. Alternatively, take the cog railway to the top of the Schafberg Mountain & admire the unrivalled 360 degree panorama of the whole region.
