Excursion destinations during your holidays on Lake Mondsee

Nature and culture during your summer holiday in Austria

There is hardly any better place to relax than our 300 metre long natural beach with sun loungers, beach bar and huge park. With all the excursion destinations around Lake Mondsee there is a lot outside the hotel area you should not miss out on either …

One of Austria's most beautiful regions: the Salzkammergut 

You are already in the middle of it, but it gets even better: the Salzkammergut with more than 70 lakes and spectacular mountain landscapes impresses not only with its natural beauties. Find true gems within; towns and cities, like historic Bad Ischl or picturesque Hallstatt.

Salzburg – keeping the legacy alive 

If Hohensalzburg Castle could talk it would have a lot to say. From Romans and archbishops to famous sons and writers; this city's past has always been kept alive. The annual Salzburg Festival proves it in the most impressive way. Salzburg is definitely worth the visit, for its cityscape between river and mountains alone.

Mondsee and Mondsee

The lake and the town have the same name. Together they have been a highlight for recreation seekers and a cultural centre for centuries; located on the Upper Austrian and Salzburger Land border. Stroll through the picturesque centre, enjoy a coffee in the shade at one of the coffee houses or look forward to eccentric hours at the Mondsee Jedermann performance or at one of the concerts during the summer. Wonderful hiking and cycling paths, golf courses and mountain tours put the cherry on the cake. 

The famous city of Hallstatt in the Salzkammergut

Hallstatt –just like a fairytale 

If you drive along Lake Hallstatt and see the town for the first time it will probably leave you speechless. The town seems to be squeezed in between the mountainside and the water surface and all this surrounded by a scenery that you could not imagine more beautiful if you tried. Hallstatt has so much more to offer, a salt mine, an ossuary and even its own era.

Imperial Bad Ischl 

It was the salt that made the Salzkammergut this big and famous. Bad Ischl used to be one of the most important transshipment points, as such it became very crucial and well known. When the healing effect of brine baths came into fashion, Bad Ischl became a prominent saltwater spa resort and was very popular with celebrities and even the emperor. Sisi and her Franz Joseph I of Austria as well as many writers, composers and royals have been guests in this royal city up until now. 

On your return an excellent dinner and a warm evening on the terrace are already waiting for your at Hotel Seehof. If you have decided to spend your holiday at the 5-star hotel right on Lake Mondsee, we would be delighted to receive your no obligation holiday enquiry
