While sailors, surfers and kiters enjoy the landscape around the Salzkammergut lakes on the surface, divers appreciate the tranquillity of the lake below. There is not much to see of mountains and steel-blue skies here. The landscape is completely different.

Divers can indulge in their hobby extensively, especially in the Salzkammergut lakes. Numerous diving centres and filling stations can be found around the 22 km long Attersee. Fascinating worlds beneath the surface of the water invite you to dive deep: Sunken relics of ancient times, spectacular cliffs and unique flora and fauna. Your contact: the Attersee Diving Competence Centre is on hand to help and advise passionate underwater sports enthusiasts.

But the rivers of Upper Austria, such as the Traun, Steyr, Enns & Co, are also excellent for diving. Thrilling currents, narrow caves, unexpected overhangs, graceful grottos and sparkling waterfalls. Discover the fascination of river diving for yourself!
