What a backdrop...

With a breathtaking backdrop of lakes such as the Attersee and Mondsee, or on the picturesque rivers Danube and Inn, you can enjoy the elegant sport of rowing in the midst of unspoilt nature. Immerse yourself in the world of water sports and experience the unique combination of sporting activity and idyllic surroundings when rowing in Upper Austria.

A real argument for entering the world of rowing: rowing is one of the healthiest sports in the world. A full-body workout that is really fun with the right technique. Alone or in a group. The latter is not only a sociable experience, but above all strengthens team spirit - after all, everyone is in the same boat... And on top of that, this sport is a wonderful way to enjoy the Upper Austrian landscape.

The rowing clubs

How easy it looks for rowing pros when they row in unison and glide across the water at a hell of a pace. They glide along smoothly - although this sport also requires strength and endurance. This is a full-body workout on Upper Austria's lakes and rivers.

Before euphorically plunging into the water, however, you should have a qualified trainer explain the rowing movements to you. The Gmunden rowing club offers a weekly training session for undiscovered talents, an intensive course for advanced rowers and youth-orientated sessions for boys and girls. The rowing clubs in the greater Linz area also offer practice trips and training sessions.
