A walk around Offensee, Salzkammergut (Austria)

Hello readers,

this is the second lake trip we did around Salzkammergut in March 2018. This one was more open than Langbathsee (maybe that’s where it got his name from? “offen” means “open” in German) and there were way more people. It wasn’t as warm as it looks on the pictures, but still very, very enjoyable!

At this point it looked a lot like there was a spot for swimming in summer, with a (then closed) kiosk and a lawn for sunbathing. We sat there for a while and enjoyed the nice weather.

This is me at the spot where we sat the longest. It was such a beautiful day!

After the walk around the lake we went past a small hut, where a lot of people were sitting (and drinking! Btw, it was still in the morning/lunch time) and bought some coffee to take away. Then we walked back to the parking spot. Many people and cars had come by the second time we got there. But who could blame them? It was the perfect day to go there!

Here is some information that I found online about the walk (it’s in German but includes a video and a map): outtour.at

Hiking the Langbathseen (Langbath Lakes), Salzkammergut (Austria)

Hello readers,

I finally found time to write about my boyfriend’s and my last hikes. This one was two months ago, in March. It was still snowing at times then, such a long winter!

The Langbathseen are located close to Ebensee in Salzkammergut in Upper Austria. We went there by car from our place in Ebensee. The hike took us about 2 hours including a lunch break and taking lots of pictures!

This was were we started and we took the round tour (both of the lakes, the third one on the list).

This was one of the first views when doing the hike. It’s the first Landbath Lake and it just looked amazing with the mountain!

We went in the morning, at about 10 a.m. and there were some people, but not many. A group with huskeys was also hiking, but unfortunately we didn’t take any pictures of them.

The hike was pretty easy and the path had almost no elevation.

This was the second Langbath Lake and we had some lunch there and enjoyed the sun.

We enjoyed this walk a lot. I really like the combination of mountains and lakes, one of the nicest views to have in my opinion!
