Enjoyable discovery tour
Lake Hallstatt has developed into a true Eldorado for stand-up paddlers in recent years. This is due to that that between Bad Goisern, Hallstatt and Obertraun there is not only a lot to see, but also some small bathing spots to cool off on hot summer days. A trip to “Seeraunz'n”, an popular restaurant destination on the “Ostuferwanderweg” hiking trail between Bad Goisern and Hallstatt train station, is particularly popular with guests and hosts.
Especially in the evening hours, the individualists are drawn to the lake.
They can often be seen when the Krippenstein is bathed in a dark orange light at sunset on a hot summers evenings. A unique experience. Simply wonderful! Freedom and independence in an idyllic nature.

How do storm warning beacons work?
Whether you’re out in a rental boat from one of the numerous rental agencies on Lake Hallstatt or underway in your own vessel, there is always a potential for storms or high waves on the lake. Storm warning beacons call attention to the weather conditions in the area. The storm warning beacons (an orange, blinking spotlight) are positioned in the north and south so that at least one signal is visual from any point on the lake.
In this manner, water enthusiasts can be immediately warned in the event of strong winds or storms. You should be aware of and heed the respective signals. A quickly rotating light signifies an approaching storm. You should leave the water immediately!
A slowly rotating light means that a storm can arise at some point in the near future. You may remain on the water but stay close to shore. Should you find yourself in a dangerous situation, call the emergency number 130. Your boat rental agency is available to answer additional questions. We hope you have a memorable and safe outing on Lake Hallstatt.
