The Austrian Alps and the Salzkammergut Mountains

The local peaks around Lake Altaussee

Mighty and ancient, the local peaks Loser and Trisselwand loom over the shores of Lake Altaussee. The Salzkammergut Mountains invite you to dream, hike and ski during your holidays in Austria.

The local peaks of Altaussee are part of the “Totes Gebirge” (Dead Mountains) mountain range, which is a part of the Northern Limestone Alps. The name hints at the rocky and mostly vegetation-less summit area of these limestone mountains. From your Hotel Seevilla you can enjoy an unmatched beautiful view of the Loser with its distinctly formed summit and the legendary Trisselwand summit.

Ausseerland and Salzkammergut Mountains: The Loser Summit, local peak of Altaussee

Start from your Hotel Seevilla and conquer the Loser summit on foot! If you prefer a more relaxed ascent, drive up on the panorama road to up to 1,600 metres of altitude. Make a stop at the Loser Alm Chalet before you continue to reach the summit. The effort is well worth it: from the 1,838 metre high summit of the Loser you will have an unparalleled view across the Lower Tauern, the Dachstein Massif and Mount Grossvenediger . The Salzkammergut lies at your feet! Equally worthwhile destinations are the "Loser-Krone" (Loser-Crown) and the “Loser-Fenster”. (Loser Window).

Trisselwand Summit: Impressive hiking tours in the Salzkammergut Mountains

If you look across the lake from Hotel Seevilla, you will see a steep imposing wall of stone – the Trisselwand. The Trisselwand legend tells the tale of the “Wildfrauen” (Wild Women) who hang out their laundry at the Trisselwand to dry. You can see these pieces of laundry: on days when shreds of clouds are captured on the Trisselwand’s rock face.

The Trisselwand summit is reached via a hiking path that starts right at your Hotel Seevilla. Beautiful views of Lake Altaussee and Lake Grundlsee await you.

Salzkammergut: A paradise for hikers and skiers

In close proximity to Hotel Seevilla the Loser summit is a fantastic destination for hikers and friends of winter sports activities. The Loser cable car will take you up higher and higher. Spend your next holidays in Austria’s Altaussee and discover the Ausseerland and Salzkammergut Mountains.
