Spring - natural awakening 


The Ausseerland has shaken off his winter clothes within a few days and it all starts to bloom and to flourish.

First little snowdrops, then crocuses and then the magnificent Aussee daffodils cover the meadows with spring colors.

The birds sing their cheerful songs and the butterflies flutter merry first rounds. The fresh grass tickles the soles of your feet and everything is full of anticipation.


The spring invites you to draw early morning first rounds, to look over the lake and to feel the first inkling of summer sun wrapped in a blanket on the lakeside terrace. Up in the mountains, the glacier glittering snow remains. But very soon it melts and the endless green meadows are awakening. Spring is the best season to experience the annual awakening of nature and the famous Aussee daffodils.  Everything grows and thrives, outside in the sun.

 Summer - joyfulness


Summer, sun, sunshine. Meadows, mountains, lakes. Everything is at the peak of nature. Butterflies, birds, deers, roebucks, chamois bucks in the forest, the people on the lake.

The range of colors and the range of possibilities is almost endless. Every day - if you want so - is full of a variety of options. A walk in the morning, then a plunge into the lake and the sunset from your private lakeside terrace on the Grundlsee with the warm sun underneath your still warm skin.

Only at the top, on the wide glacial fields of the nearby Dachstein glacier, which can be well seen from the Grundlsee, up there the sparkle of snow reminds you to experience as much summer as possible. To absorb the summer days. To warm up your soul.

Autumn - colorfulness


Colorful warmth. The autumn presents itself still in full green glory and colorful leaves. All shades of red and yellow are visible. The warm glowing light of this enchanting time of the year comes with the fall. Everything is bathed in warm sunlight. The fog-free, clear autumn air invites you to welcome the warm sun rays in your face and soak up the sun for the soon to come winter months. 

A golden light surrounds the nearby mountain peaks. The seem to be closer than ever. The nature has become quiet and again left to themselves.

Autumn is also muse time. Hiking, a round of rowing on the lake, mountain biking, music, literature, and endless walks. While the first leaves underfoot rustle and smells wonderful forest and nature. And thirst dears can be heart in the forrest searching loved ones.

Winter - wonderland

As soon as winter is here the first thick soft snowflakes fall and cover the nature with a beautiful blanket of snow. It looks like mountains and valleys would wear her best white dress. An incomparable silence lies over the lake and the surrounding area.

A fairytale like winter dream.


Atmospheric billions of  snow crystals glint in the Ausseer sun. The Grundlsee is covered by a thick layer of smooth ice and invites you to take your turns ice-skating. Or you put on warm winter boots and leave your footprints in the snow. First tracks in the snow.

Numerous winter sports facilities invite you to jump out of bed. There is much to experience in this winter wonderland.
