Mountains, lakes ... simply unforgettable, beautiful landscapes. The Salzkammergut is uniquely diverse and countless trails are waiting to be explored. Whether simple walks, real hikes, or all-day tours - we are happy to reveal where it is best.

At the Post am See you can feel the closeness to the mountains and the bond with nature. Grab your hiking backpack, lace up your mountain boots and start walking. Most hikes begin as soon as you leave the hotel, without the long journey and the annoying search for a parking space. The Post am See is the ideal base station to explore the picturesque landscape around the Traunsee and to relax in the mountains.

No matter what you are looking for, you will find it here. Whether a simple walk without a precise plan of where to go, a leisurely hike with the whole family, or a sweaty mountain tour on the Traunstein - the Traunsee region has it all to offer.
