Pfarrkirche St. Georgen im Attergau

Reviewed By Boro_Steve - London

Like with many Austrian towns and villages, the church is the focal point and prominent landmark which is easily seen from anywhere. The church is beautifully maintained and the churchyard is very moving walking around looking at the immaculate headstones and Crosses of people buried there.

Attersee-Schifffahrt

Join us on board of the Attersee-Schifffahrt (steamboat) and discover an overwhelming interplay of colors and the fascinating landscape. You'll be inspired of the fabulous turquoise lake as well as of our culinary delights.

Reviewed By rabby123 - Havant, United Kingdom

Nice views, clean, warm, possibility of tea and cake and open spaces. The boats have toilets on. We went from Attersee to Weyregg just to look around and stop and have lunch. It was a good trip, the crew were very friendly and drive the boats well.

Fischerei Ecker

Reviewed By Winemongeress - San Anselmo, California

Fischerei Ecker (basically, fisher Ecker with Ecker being the last name of the fisherman) sells incredibly fresh, seasonal local fish from the lake that you can take home and cook, as well as already prepared delicacies. For fish they usually have Saibling and Forelle, which are both white-flesh types of trout, as well as a pink fleshed lake Salmon (called Lachs.) In season they offer smoked lake eel! Perfect if you are renting an airBnB or are staying somewhere with a kitchen. But don't skip it if you don't have that option! They also have a lot of ready-to-eat options that you can buy and then go find a lovely place around the lake for a picnic. Don't miss the marinated herring with dill or the crayfish ("flusskrebs") in a kind of sour cream sauce that, and I know this may sound odd but it's really good, includes pineapple. They also do their own smoked trout, which is lovely, and a salmon pate. Oh! And the herring butter! Get that! Sometimes they have a fish soup for sale that is really tasty, and other times they sell Saibling caviar which is divine. Pick up some fresh bread from one of the local bakeries or markets (I suggest the Billa in Seewalchen if you are marketing), stop here for tasty goodness, and then find a public spot by the lake. Be sure to get a cold bottle of Gruner Veltliner wine to go with it all.

Tauchschule Under Pressure

Reviewed By gwenism

My friend and I did our dry suit diving course with Under Pressure. It was a wonderful experience as it is our first time diving cold water and lake! It may be a difficult course for us divers who are used to warm waters but no pressure at all! Our instructor, Wolfgang were thoughtful and patient throughout the course. The boss, Bocki was also helpful in getting accommodation for us and it was a pleasure stay at Attersee! Value for money!

Gustav Klimt Center

On the Attersee, Gustav Klimt derived Inspiration for his famous landscapes which continue to fascinate art enthusiasts from all over the world to this day. Since 2015 the Klimt Foundation has been running the documentation center situated in immediate proximity to the linden avenue of Schloss Kammer once painted by Klimt. Visitors can experience the fascinating atmosphere of the Attersee which captured the famous Jugendstil artist‘s imagination from 1900 to 1916. Klimt‘s paths and motifs in the countryside and on the lake can be explored via a walk along the Klimt Artist Trail or a boat ride on the Attersee.

Reviewed By patan116 - York, United Kingdom

The small but beautifully designed gallery shows just the right mix of original artwork, explanation and related material to give an understanding of Klimt's relationship with the Attersee region. The film (with English sub-titles) puts paintings and settings together in a visually interesting way. Sailing to Kammer, walking the Klimtweg to Seewalchen and returning by boat makes an excellent excursion.

Basilica St.Michael

Reviewed By travel101travel

Visited the town of Mondsee on a tour for The Sound of Music and saw the Basilica during this time. The building extremely beautiful with its bright yellow exterior. Saw it in the midst of the snow which made it even more exciting. Even for those who are not religious, this site holds great historical significance and is bound to be loved by all Sound of Music fans or those who are interested in different kinds of architecture. Would definitely recommend if you fit any of these categories. The inside is also very spacious and has nice statues and ornaments.

Reviewed By gf1952wf - Steyr, Austria

In Gampern anwesend besuchten wir natürlich die Kirche mit einem der drei Oberösterreichischen Flügelaltäre. Dieser Altar steht den Flügelaltären in Käfermarkt und St. Wolfgang nicht hinterher. Ein prachtvolles Kunstwerk.

Komponierhaeuschen von Gustav Mahler

Reviewed By MrLoo - Antwerp, Belgium

After picking up the key at the reception of Hotel Foettinger and walking through the busy camping ground - you can find some peace at Mahler's composing hut. When you enter , the 3rd symphony starts , and you can read all the interesting materials on display (mainly related to the 2nd and 3rd)
This composition hut is not a shrine for Mahler (unlike the composition hut of Maiernigg) but surrounded by the beautiful nature you can better understand the 3rd symphony . Mahler fans may enjoy it a lot
After Reading all the exhibits - we sat down on the floor to listen to the whole of the 3rd symphony. Unfortunately, if the sensors don't detect any movement they turn off the music - so we were close to the end of the third movement when the music stopped. When we got up the music started again - again the 3rd symphony from the beginning
And there are some funny details. We had a Gustav Mahler eisbecher after the visit.
... but there is a festival of classical music on the Attersee using Mahler's picture, but they program Strauss waltzes. Poor Gustav
Thank you to the Hotel for preserving Mahler Composition hut

Aussichtsturm Lichtenberg

Reviewed By Stollentroll65 - Berlin, Germany

Mitten im Wald liegt der Aussichtsturm Lichtenberg, nicht weit von Sankt Georgen entfernt. Wenn man die 208 Stufen erklommen hat, erwartet einen eine tolle Aussicht bis hin zum Attersee.
Tipp: zum Sonnenuntergang hinfahren!

Kalvarienberg

Reviewed By Anton E - Lenzing, Austria

Der beliebte kurze Wanderweg auf den Kalvarienberg im Ortsteil Thern von St. Georgen im Attergau lässt für einen Augenblick den Trubel des Alltags vergessen und lädt zu einer Rast mit herrlichem Rundblick ein.
Die 14 Kreuzwegstationen stellen die Leidensgeschichte von Jesus Christus dar und wurden in den Jahren 1862 bis 1869 errichtet und 1982 bzw. 2016 renoviert. Die Kirche wurde von 1864 bis 1869 errichtet. Von der damals abgerissenen St. Andrä-Kirche in Salzburg wurden die Portale, der Kreuzaltar und die Statuen von Moses und Aaron wiederverwendet. Die Statuen der vier Kirchenlehrer (Gregor, Hieronymus, Augustinus und Ambrosius) stammen aus einer Salzburger Schnitzer-Werkstatt und wurden 1902 angekauft.
Ein Dieb entwendete die Figur des Hl. Gregors im Jahr 1978, sie wurde bis jetzt nicht aufgefunden. 1984 wurde sie durch eine neue ersetzt.
Man kann nur hoffen, das dieses stimmungsvolle und einmalige Kalvarienberg-Ensemble vor Plänen zur Verbauung bewahrt und weiteren Generationen zur Erholung erhalten bleibt.
