The region around the Attersee offers countless opportunities for hiking, biking or horseback riding. An inexhaustible variety of hiking trails, climbing routes and about 140 kilometers of bridle paths leave no wishes unfulfilled.

Those wishing to explore the underwater world of turquoise lake Attersee, have the opportunity to contact local dive schools or dive at one of the numerous entry points themselves. Every year, thousands of divers frequent the Attersee. Even advanced divers should be accompanied by an experienced local diver at some dive spots (such as the black wall).
