The village of Obertraun is set on the eastern shores of the beautiful Hallstattersee Lake in the Inner Salzkammergut region of Austria. Boasting a unique blend of 7000 year old history and stunning natural beauty, the Inner Salzkammergut is a special place to visit. The regions cultural heritage and unspoilt nature led UNESCO to declare it a cultural and natural World Heritage Site, with the beautiful village of Hallstatt at its heart. The ferry will transport you across the lake, providing a stunning panorama of Hallstatt, where you can spend a day exploring the narrow streets, churches and museum and the Salt Mine. Also a visit to the Dachstein Ice Cave and the 5 Finger viewing platform (open from the middle of May) are a must. The numerous marked trails make this a paradise for all grades of walkers, with crystal clear lakes and high mountain peaks providing stunning backdrops. We provide a local walking map and will be very happy to assist you in organising a personal itinerary. For more information see our Walkers page. If you are looking for something a little more relaxing the lakeside offers the perfect place to sit-back with a book, the quiet ebbing of the lake is sure to relax and re-vitalise. We are pleased to offer our guests transfer services between Obertraun Salzburg, or Hallstatt.
