6 Awesome Photospots in the Salzkammergut, Austria


First, we headed to the Gosauseen, they are a 1hour and 20-minute drive away from Salzburg city. You can park right next to the lake.

So already everyone knows Hallstatt, it’s famous for its charming houses next to the Hallstätter See.

The next spot on the list was the Ödensee, that’s a 30-minute drive from Hallstatt. This location is definitely a winter wonderland and a big recommendation. There is a parking place right next to the lake.

Since we’ve been already doing a lake tour, we headed towards the Grundlsee, which is about a 20-minute drive from the Ödensee.

Altauseer See

Next to the Grundlsee is the beautiful Altauseer See. We found this beautiful peer very close to the Vivamayer Hotel in Altausee. There is also a parking spot right in front of it.

And the last stop was the Traunsee. This was a 45-minute drive from the Altauseer See towards the north. We stopped in the middle of Traunkirchen and got this beautiful panorama.
