Hiking in Autumn Program: Echo- and Weisenblasen on the Lake
Location: Hallstätter See - Obertrauner Bucht, Obertraun
A romantic evening on Lake Hallstatt
When in the evening the sun over the Plassen - the local mountain of Hallstatt – dips into the mountain world and the last boats come into the "ports", then it becomes silent on Lake Hallstatt. At precisely this time, musicians belonging to the Obertraun band go out on the lake on a “Fuhr”, the traditional wooden boat of the people on the lakes in the Salzkammergut, and invite to an unforgettable music experience: “Weisenblasen” Dating back to the turn of the 19th century, “Weisenblasen” was customary at weddings, mountain masses etc.
On this summer evening the Obertrauner bay becomes one of the most romantic places on Lake Hallstatt. Whether you are having dinner at the Seecafe, barbecuing, or an evening picnic on the beach area right by the lake - the sounds of the centuries-old music will inspire you! The incomparable ending of an exciting vacation day in the Salzkammergut! We look forward to seeing you as part of the "Obertrauner Wanderherbst" on Lake Hallstatt!
