The sparkling sapphire waters of the Fuschlsee Lake provide a stunning centrepiece for the remarkable resort of Fuschl am See. Occupying a picturesque pocket of pasture between vibrant Salzburg and idyllic Bad Ischl, the tempting town offers visitors an alluring array of unique and incredible activities. Refresh and revitalise in the crystal clear waters of the lake; follow trails that present the best of the region’s natural splendour; or absorb the rich historical heritage with a visit to important architectural and agricultural monuments.
Take advantage of the wondrous waterfront with an idyllic boat trip upon the Fuschlsee Lake; slide over the smooth and sparkling surface while observing beautiful bays and eventually end at the commanding Castle of Fuschl, an authoritative structure that has defended the small village for centuries.
Enjoy a hiking path with a dynamic difference with a visit to the The Gnomes Path, a colourful cultural endeavour in which the story of the humble gnome is revealed. The path leads to the iconic Running Mill, an important agricultural icon steeped in 150 years of history. The mill still functions as it did over a century ago, and the complex processes can be discovered by curious visitors.
Oozing class and charisma, the Brunnwirt Restaurant enjoys an idyllic location upon the blissful banks of the lake. The family owned establishment exudes an enjoyable aura of warm welcome in its 600 year old home. Sample the rich and robust flavours of typical Bavarian dishes such as roasted duck, creamy risotto and fried carp before concluding with some indulgent Bavarian cream and fresh fruit.
