A lakeside winter holiday in Fuschl am See.
WWW: Waldhof's Winter Wonderland.
You're probably asking yourself what Lake Fuschl has to offer in winter once the swimming season is over. Outside perhaps, but not inside! The Waldhof Water World with its whirl pool, indoor pool and sports pool give guests the chance to swim to their heart's content and the Sauna World is the ideal place to warm up after a long winter walk. And then of course there is always skiing, snow-biking, tobogganing, ice skating, snow-tubing, cross-country skiing, snow-shoe walks … The best thing about Lake Fuschl is that it's worth visiting in both summer and winter. Fun and action can be had all year round and wellness and relaxation is the focal point of any holiday at the wellness hotel Waldhof.
A winter holiday in the Salzkammergut Lake District is truly balm for the soul. However, we our selves aren't even sure if we prefer the summer or the winter. Because both seasons at Ebner's Waldhof are equally appealing, it's probably best to try out both!
Winter walking in Salzburg County.
Many of the cleared winter walks start right outside the hotel's front door. This is the ideal way to get to know Fuschl am See and the surrounding countryside. The altitude means that the village is pleasantly free of fog during the winter months and that winter walks are normally accompanied by sunshine. One of the most popular walks in winter is the lakeside path and the short walk up to the Waldhof Alm mountain restaurant where you are rewarded with fantastic views of the mountains both near and far. Those of you looking for something truly romantic will enjoy the horse-drawn sleigh rides into the countryside where only the breathing of the horses, the crunching of snow and tinkling of sleigh bells can be heard.
Curling and ice yachting on Lake Fuschl.
When Lake Fuschl freezes over in winter, the smooth, glassy surface is ideal for a range of winter activities; Austrian curling, ice skating and ice yachting. At the Waldhof Alm there's also a small pond which, should its big brother not quite have frozen, can also be used for a game of curling. Our wellness representative Katharina and the Ebner family are happy to show you how it's done and help you with the rules.
Every second day our horses are harnessed up to the sleigh.
