Winkl lakeside beach
The Winkl lakeside beach in Obertraun is one of the most beautiful natural swimming areas around Lake Hallstatt. This bathing place offers also an area for nudity lovers, as well as an area for dogs and their owners.
At the beginning of Obertraun in the district Winkl, in the middle of almost untouched nature, is the lakeside beach resort Winkl at the Lake Hallstatt. The water is rather cool but crystal clear, refreshing and very inviting.
Freedom for dog, body and soul
Natural barriers and embankments divide the lakeside beach into three bathing zones, all of which are freely accessible.
On the one hand, there is a dog bathing area, with its own dog toilet, so that our four-legged friends don't miss out.
In the year 1987 after an initiative of some inhabitants together with a few guests a part was separated and converted to the nudist bathing area.
A bathing place that offers a lot of variety!
The view in the direction of Hallstatt and Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt offers a beautiful landscape consisting of mountains, lakes and wide forests that can enchant us with their stories.
