SWIM HOLIDAY IN SAALBACH Swimming & water sports in the middle of the mountains of the SalzburgerLand

Bathing fun for the whole family

When it comes to Saalbach, many think about winter holiday and skiing right away, but Saalbach has so much more to offer – especially in summer. The mountain lakes invite for cooling refreshment after hikes with their crystal-clear water. The adventure public pool in Saalbach is the perfect place for the entire family, and the natural backdrop of those nearby lakes provides relaxation.

Gorgeous swimming lakes around Saalbach

The beautiful Lake Zell with the three public beaches Zell am See, Thumersbach and Schüttdorf is less than 20 kilometres away. Lake Zell provides pure swimming fun for all ages in summer with a water temperature exceeding 20 degrees. Thanks to its drinking water quality, Lake Zell is very popular with swimming guests. But there’s also a lot of water sport to be experienced in the province of Salzburg.

The three public beaches aren’t just the ideal swimming gateway, but also for sailing, surfing, kayaking, water skiing or stand-up paddling (the ultimate trend sport right now). If that doesn’t sound adventurous enough, we recommend a rafting tour on the Saalach or the canyoning course in Saalbach.

The recreation area at the Ritzensee, only about 25 km from Saalbach, is another popular swimming holiday destination. The natural swimming facility in the town Saalfelden offers a spacious sunbathing area, a sports field and children’s playground, a naturism area and much more.

Family fun with Käpt’n Hook

Find the Käpt’n Hook adventure pool directly in Saalbach. A wild water canal, three slides, water cannons and much more will knock children’s socks off.

While the kids experience their pirate adventures, you can unhurriedly swim your lanes or kick back on the massaging loungers.

Tip: With the JOKERCARD, which you receive on the day of arrival, admission to the Käpt'n Hook adventure pool is free.

Cooling in the Teufelswasser water world

The swimming holiday in Saalbach has something very special in store for you – the Teufelswasser water world in the valley end near the Lindlingalm. The Teufelswasser owes its name to an old legend. However, nobody needs to be afraid here – quite the opposite, as children can climb, play and simply have fun here. The Teufelswasser is open from mid-May to mid-October and offers free swimming fun!

A swimming holiday in Saalbach offers both variety and fun for the entire family – see for yourself!
