Triathlon - Region Walchsee
The Walchsee region in the Kaiserwinkl is one of the few sports regions around Austria that offer outstanding conditions for a triathlon. Noting can outdo the combination of mountain and lake. This is also the reason why the annual Tyrol Challenge Walchsee-Kaiserwinkl takes place at the Walchsee. The region is ideal not only for actual competition, though – you will find the perfect geographic prerequisites for comprehensive training here as well.
Symbiosis - Kaisergebirge & Walchsee
Any number of running and cycling routes crisscross the Walchsee region and the Kaiser Mountains. The different routes run along the Walchsee up into the mountains, thus offering many variations for diverse training. Those that lead higher up into the mountains pose additional challenges for runners due to the altitude difference. Taking a break during a training unit, you will find quickly that the effort pays off. The region around the Walchsee is not only known for its perfect triathlon conditions – it is also particularly popular with athletes around the world for its beauty.
Not only the mountains cast their spell on many. Our portfolio also contains a depth of 25 m, surface of 100 ha and a breath-taking view – at our Walchsee!
At an average temperature for a pleasant 20 to 24 °C in the summer months, the Walchsee is one of the warmest lakes of Tyrol. In addition to its warm temperatures, which permit fast swimming, the lake's water is of outstanding quality –exceeding the requirements to drinking water. All of these factors make it perfect for extensive training.
