Challenge for extreme swimmers

The “Lake Hallstatt swimming marathon” takes place on Saturday 6th August 2022, in the UNESCO World Heritage Region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut. The start of the 10 kilometre long swimming race takes place in the Untersee beach in Bad Goisern - on the north shore of Lake Hallstatt. In the extreme distance, extreme athletes from around the world will pass the world famous scenery of Hallstatt across the lake to the Obertraun beach on the south shore. Here the “Lake Hallstatt swimming marathon” will be rounded off in the evening, by a comprehensive program with award ceremonies.

Kids take part in a swimming ability competition. This year there is also something new for children who wish to take part in a swimming competition. Divided into two different age groups, children can take part in a kid’s swimming ability competition at Obertraun beach. The aim is for the kids to conquer 4-5 different elements and swim distances of about 100 or 200 metres respectively. "Here, fun with the element 'water' is at the forefront!" says organiser Bernhard Höll. "Hellishly well cared for" is simultaneously his motto and slogan for the whole execution of the Lake Hallstatt swimming marathon.
