Finally arrived

Feeling right at home

A warm welcome to what is probably the most charming spot on the shores of the magnificent Wolfgangsee lake in Austria. Our campground offers everything you need for a perfect holiday. Not only will you find tranquillity, relaxation, plenty of options for physical activity and a warm and cosy atmosphere, Lindenstrand Campground also offers ample space to truly make yourself at home. Our campground gives you all of these advantages right on the shores of a truly beautiful lake that has mesmerised European nobility and royalty for many centuries. Our campground is located in the hamlet of Abersee near the town of St Gilgen, directly on the shores of Wolfgangsee with its crystal-clear waters, peacefully nestled among historic orchards and lush green meadows.

A family business with a rich local tradition

We invite our guests to experience the true and authentic life in this natural reserve with its long history in rock salt mining – not a tacky programme that makes you feel like you are visiting a theme park. Our family continues to cultivate the meadows and fields surrounding our campground with their own hands. Our historic farm symbolises the roots of our family in this beautiful landscape and also emphasises our commitment to continuity and stability. Our campground facilities are heated exclusively with wood collected from our own forest – our family’s contribution to the sustainable protection of our climate and natural environment.

Discover a premium camping experience with uncompromised wellbeing, right on the shores of the precious Wolfgangsee. Welcome to Lindenstrand Campground. Make yourself at home!

Come on, let’s go to the beach.

One of our campground’s highlights – the beach – is only a few steps from the campsites. Our beach is 140 m long, slightly sloped, and lined with bright pebbles that radiate a pleasant warmth. The shallow area along the shore is the perfect place for families with children. Here the kids can splash around in the shallow water while you comfortably unwind in one of our rental deckchairs. Guests can also relax in the two nature areas to the right and left of the bay, which are covered with soft green lawns. Or spend time sunbathing on the comfortably warm pebbles or stretching out on the timber slats of our wide pontoon. Our private pontoon extends far into Wolfgangsee and allows for a refreshing jump into its deep and crystal-clear waters. Float over the lake on your SUP board or in a kayak while you take in the breathtaking panoramic views: the expanse of the lake stretches to the horizon right in front of you, with the silhouette of historic St Gilgen visible at the far end of the lake. The majestic Falkensteinwand – a steep rock formation rising on your right-hand side – attracts daredevil cliff divers from all around the world. Facing each other, the imposing Schafberg and Zwölferhorn mountains are towering atop this breathtaking scenery, a popular destination for many of the hikes and excursions in our beautiful region.

Premium camping – our 4 campsite categories

Free space is an essential ingredient for being able to wind down and relax. A warm and cosy atmosphere that caters to the needs of all family members is especially important during holidays. This is why all of our 209 campsites offer a generous amount of free space and privacy (campground map). Each campsite offers between 70 and 100 square metres (750 to 1,100 square foot) of free space – enough to make yourself truly comfortable and park your vehicle in close vicinity to your accommodation. Each campsite also has an electricity supply, and most sites also have water and sewage connections. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the campground.

Resting comfortably

Depending on whether you spend your holidays in a tent, RV, campervan or trailer, you will have different requirements in terms of the terrain. Our campground offers two different types of terrains – a solid gravel surface which makes it easy to perfectly balance camping trailers, RVs and campervans. We also offer a soft and spongy grassy terrain, which will ensure you get a well-cushioned good night’s sleep in your tent.

Discover your favourite campsite

Our campground offers four categories of campsites to choose from. Whether you prefer the wide-open space of a summer meadow, the balmy shade of the fruit trees in our traditional orchard, or fading into sweet dreams listening to the waves on the lakeshore: we are certain that you will find your “personal spot” that will make your holiday an unforgettable time.

Modern restrooms, showers and laundry facilities

Our campground offers two separate locations with modern and sparkling clean showers, restrooms and laundry facilities. Implementing the latest technical standards and spotless cleanliness at all times is our top priority.

Pure relaxation: the indoor area

In early 2018, we have realised a long-held dream and created a lounge on the first floor of our new beach house. The new building has recreated all the details of the old farmhouse. Various natural materials, timber roof tiles and plenty of glass ensure that the new building is in perfect harmony with the surrounding landscape. Enjoy the panoramic views across to Schafberg mountain and over the lake, which are still breathtaking even in less than perfect weather conditions. The three balconies offer you stunning panoramic views that are second to none.
