Most swimming lakes also have kid’s playgrounds, a beach volleyball court as well as a restaurant or hut offering meals or snacks. Your Salzburger Sportworld Card gives a discount for the entry fee, the Reiteck lake and the lake in Flachauwinkel have free entry. As these lakes are all so nearby, they make good destinations for bike trips.
The larger lakes in SalzburgerLand, such as Fuschlsee, Wolfgangsee, Mattsee, Trumer See or Zeller See are also attractive for day trips.
And if the weather doesn’t play along, the Therme Amadé is only 5 km away from Radstadt (reduced admission with your guest card). Alternative options for swimming fun are the Wasserwelt Wagrain or the Schladming adventure pool.
Horse riding fans will love Radstadt and the Salzburger Sportworld with its
- 160 km network of bridleways

- ideal for a fun ride whether it is a gentle trot along the river and through the meadows or a gallop through the forest.

Enjoy a refreshing day of swimming in the outdoor pool in Radstadt, only about 600 m from the Hotel Stegerbräu on foot.

In good weather, the swimming pool is open daily from approx. the end of May from 09:00 to 19:00 and offers heated pools and toddler pools, a 40 m long giant slide, a large sunbathing lawn and a kiosk.
Fun sports are in fashion, try your hand at mountain carting or summer tobogganing down the mountain. Canyoning lets you abseil over a waterfall, slide down the rocks or jump into a mountain pool. Rafting or kayaking through white water is a real adrenaline rush. Test your courage with climbing or at the high ropes courses or test your skill at the 3-D Archery courses.
Why not explore your surroundings on a Segway tour for something new. Our small guests love the mini-quad course or the summer toboggan run on rollercoaster rails.
