The largest lake in the Salzkammergut is flanked mostly by hills, with mountains in the south. It’s one of the less scenic and less visited of the Salzkammergut’s lakes. The tourist office in the resort of Attersee can help with accommodation and has a telephone service from May to September from 9am to 8pm.
Attersee-Schifffahrt does mostly alternating boat circuits of the north (adult/child €10/5, 1¼ hours) and south (€16/8, 2¼ hours) regions of the lake several times most days from Easter to early October. Full circuits combining both segments can be done on weekends from Easter to September, and daily in July and August (adult/child €20/10, 3¾ hours).
The two lakeside towns of Attersee and Schörfling are each connected to the rail network by a line branching from the main Linz–Salzburg route (only regional trains make stops): for Kammer-Schörfling change at Vöcklabruck, and for Attersee change at Vöcklamarkt.
