Cable cars run from the centre of the village to the summit on a regular basis, allowing you to take in the stunning scenery as you ascend.

Bowl of fruit and Prosecco in the fridge is a nice touch, plus the personal welcome from the owners. Local Spar about 9km away which stocked pretty much everything we needed. We went up the Donnaberg cable car when it was open on a beautifully sunny day, and walked back down the mountain home. Has a hilarious Thursday night at the local hotel which had traditional Austrian dancing, which called for audience participation at times! A truly peaceful location to stay in the summer - thank you

It's brilliant in summer as there's so much to do: it's in walking distance of the beach, there's mini-golf, slides, walks around the lake, boat trips, tobogganing, water skiiing and wakeboarding, boat and canoe hire, you can take the cable car to the top of the mountain where there are amazing views and nice mountain restaurants, or you can take a train right to the top of an even higher mountain! It's great and you don't even need a car - we just got a bus from Salzburg airport. I've been in winter too and it's really lovely, especially around Christmas time when they have an advent festival with a Christmas market, mulled wine, bands, etc. You need a hire car though to get to the ski lifts. Overall it's a great flat and highly recommended!
