Sports & Action

Those looking for athletic challenges will get their money’s worth – whether ashore, on water or up in the air. The hilly landscape offers numerous well-marked tracks for bikers and hikers, as well as climbing and abseiling in dizzying heights. A bathing lake and public bathing beaches are popular with swimmers and for all sorts of water sports. One of the highlights is the worldwide unique water skiing and wakeboarding facility with four pulling cables. For all this and many possibilities for relaxing after your sporting activities, this website provides valuable information.
