Swimming in SalzburgerLand
What would summer be like without a jump into refreshing water? There’s nothing better on a hot summer’s day! SalzburgerLand is home to an abundance of stunning lakes that are ideal for swimming such as Zellersee, Mattsee, Fuschlsee and Wolfgangsee. Plus, their waters are safe to drink. Discover a total of 180 lakes! Some farms even have a private beach on the lakeshore. Are you looking for a refreshing dip in crystal-clear waters far off the crowds? If you’re brave enough, you can plunge your toes into cool mountain streams or shimmering glacial lakes. You can also choose a farm or mountain cabin that comes with a private swimming pond or pool. SalzburgerLand boasts a diversity of options for swimming.
Enjoy a Pristine Lake View
Are you dreaming of a farm holiday on the shore of a beautiful lake featuring direct access to the water and a private beach? Good news! On our farms in SalzburgerLand, you can make your dreams come true. Walk to the lake, barefoot, and unwind. Return to the farm when you’ve got a tan. There’s a lovely place in the shade between the fruit trees and the herb garden. But these spots are rare. You better book early!
Alternatively, you can stay on picturesque farms perched on the surrounding hills. They are further away from the shore but often come with a spectacular lake view. The farms are within a stone’s throw of the beaches. Your hosts know exactly where you can find the most beautiful spot to spend your day.
Swimming Pond, Pool & More
Ready for a Refreshing Swim on the Farm?
Of course, we all want to stay on a farm featuring direct access to the turquoise waters of a beautiful lake. In a lot of cases, these places are fully booked for months in advance. But you don’t even need a large lake to take a refreshing swim when temperatures rise above 30 °C. The truth is, you don’t need much if you’d like to cool down your feet after a long hike or start an epic water fight with the kids. A private swimming pond on the farm or a small pool is a great alternative to crowded beaches on the lakeshores. Don’t you think?
