The wonderful town of Walchsee occupies a picturesque position at the foot of the Kaiser Mountains. Situated upon the shores of the expansive and shimmering Lake Walchsee, the town enjoys a varied programme of outdoor activities throughout the year; shrouded in local legend and bursting with fascinating flora and fauna, the scenic surrounding provide incredible opportunities for energetic excursions and exhilarating exploration. Ski, snow board or sled during the snow smothered winter months for an entirely different experience of this rural and rustic place.
The proximate lake and rushing rivers provide energetic activities for those seeking either adrenaline or serenity. The warm waters of Lake Walchsee make it an ideal place in which to soothe aching muscles and calm the soul, while sailing, water skiing and rowing are also activities in reach.
For more exhilarating excursions, visit the Zahmer Kaiser Leisrue Centre, where snow isn’t necessary for sledding. Soar down the vertiginous tracks to enjoy surges in adrenaline, before contemplating your next exciting adventure; the rushing rapids of the river provide an ideal place for white water rafting, so prepare to get wet and enjoy one of the wildest excursions of your life upon the waves.
