Things to Do in Hintersee

Hintersee is on the edge of the Salzkammergut and can be found in the Osterhorngruppe mountain range. Hintersee is thus great for hiking and exploring Alpine lakes; the community also has a small ski ressort, Hintersee-Gaißau. The village is small and not touristy at all; most skiing tourists are there on day-trips and locals that live in the city of Salzburg or the Flachgau.
