Ship ahoy! Salt Mine and Altaussee Ferry Ride

First immerse yourself in the fascinating subterranean world, then, just a few minutes later, you will find yourself on the shore of a lake – the Altausseer See. As the “Altaussee”, Austria’s first solar-powered ship, glides across the water, you will add to your rucksack full of memories.. A boat ride across the crystal-clear Altausseer See, which is nestled like an emerald at the foot of the Loser between the mountainsides, is one of those experiences that touches your very core. The mystical atmosphere of the over 70-meters-deep lake can also be clearly felt as you debark on the shore of the Altausee, at the Seewiese nature sanctuary, and continue on foot. Perhaps you will choose to sit down at a table in one of the inns along the way, such as Jagdhaus Seewiese, the Kahlseneck, the Strandcafe, the Hotel am See or the Seevilla. And as you enjoy a culinary specialty or two from the Ausseerland, you will simultaneously be able to soak in the glorious views of the surrounding mountain world, of the Trisselwand, the Loser and the Hoher Dachstein. Take a deep breath, feel the lightness of being.
