Out & About in the Great Outdoors

Bad Ischl

From golf over cycling and running to snowshoeing, Bad Ischl offers different opportunities to be physically active in every season of the year.

The guests with wanderlust can look forward to around 200 km of well sign-posted hiking paths around Bad Ischl. The local mountain, the Katrin, affords a 360-degree view of the Salzkammergut. Incidentally, you can access Ischl’s very own mountain by cable car as well as on foot. Mountain bikers can look forward to a total cycling network of 1,200 km accessible directly from Bad Ischl. The crystal-clear mountain spring water of the Salzkammergut’s 70 lakes in the immediate vicinity invite swimmers, sun worshippers and hobby anglers to tarry a while on their shores. Tennis courts, two indoor climbing walls, one 18-hole golf course and horse-riding complete the offer of sporting activities.

Katrin Mountain

In a leisurely 15 minutes, the Katrin cable car takes you up to the most beautiful nature reserve in the Salzkammergut. In summer, the magical 7 lake view hike, the nature adventure trail “In the footsteps of the chamois” and the walking paths to the viewing platforms “Trauntalblick” and “3-Länder-Blick” invite you to explore. The Katrin fixed rope route is ideal for climbers. Let yourself be pampered in summer and winter on the sun terraces of the Katrin Almhütte and the Katrin mountain restaurant, with a view of the majestic Dachstein.
