Latest reviews on Upper Austria's beaches

Freier Seezugang Oberburgau
4 Jay Lo

The view is stunning, but there is no actual beach area, only enough room for two small groups. Cars frequently pass by very close to the beach, within a distance of 2 meters. The water is extremely cold, especially in mid-August, making it unsuitable for swimming.

Alpenseebad Mondsee beach
10 Avery A

This lake is absolutely amazing! I've visited multiple times and I can't wait to go back again. The range of water activities available will keep you entertained, and there are also several floating docks where you can just unwind and relax. If you ever get the opportunity, I highly recommend visiting this place. The admission fee is only €7 (€5 after 13:00)!

Strandbad Untersee
10 Kellan Ryland

We were worried that Hallstattsee would be too crowded, but we were pleasantly surprised to find it clean and peaceful. We really enjoyed our time here. You can have dinner, swim, or even go paddleboarding. Just keep in mind that sleeping, even in campers, is not allowed here.

Erlebnisbad Attersee
10 Zara Kadeem

While on a road trip, we spontaneously stopped at Attersee due to its stunning views. The beach was fantastic, with clean restrooms and showers. The water slide at the lake was enjoyable, and the water was incredibly clear. I highly recommend this spot. 👌
