Softly Mobile Holiday at Weissensee (Austria)

Action-Packed, Delicious, Surprisingly Different – Weissensee Nature Park

The embodiment of sustainable tourism, Austria is understandably proud of this idyllic tourist getaway with its spectacular scenery and pure drinking water. The countryside along the lake did not succumb to the tourist rush and remains as picturesque as it once was. Here you find green mobility and absolute leisure time for your soul: Start your holiday with a relaxed train ride. Gaze at the gorgeous surroundings as you explore the Nature Park by bus. Enjoy many fun-filled activities, such a swimming, diving, fishing, boating, mountain biking and hiking. We took great care to put together many climate-friendly holiday deals.

 

Summer or winter, the Weissensee cable car takes you to idyllic Alpine meadows and mountain peaks for athletic feats and relaxation and most of all for stunning vistas. In the winter, Weissensee attracts many tourists to frolic in the snow. Ice-skating, cross-country skiing and sledding are especially popular (and all of them climate-friendly). The lake is the site of the legendary Dutch speed skating event “Alternative 11.Städttour” and the international curling competition “Servus Alpenpokal”.

The ice prep masters of the area make sure that the surface of the ice sheet is always in perfect condition to ensure your ice skating delight. Ice hockey rinks, curling sheets and cross-country trails attract large crowds to the lake and create a lively picture of winter bliss. The two major events on the ice are “Alternative 11 Städtetour” (a speed skating event) and “Servus Alpenpokal” (an international curling competition).
