We visited the lake in August, and regretted the decision. Parking is very difficult around the lake and costly at times. There is a free car park in Kammer Am Attersee next to the police station, but get there early it gets full quickly. Compared with the rest of Austria this area appears significantly more expensive than the rest. The lake itself is ok to swim in and said to be the warmest of all the lakes but it can be difficult to get to it. You can hire boats on the lake. We would suggest visiting some of the slightly smaller lakes that are close to Attersee instead.

If i had to take ONE picture--from the 9,000 I took while in Austria--and turn it into a postcard, THIS may be it!

It. Is. Amazing!

We rented a car (in Vienna) to drive towards Salzburg and into Germany (to see the Eagle's Nest) and stopped at Attersee on the way home.... i have NEVER seen an inland lake so turqoise (like the mediterranean or carribean) in my life. The mountains... the WATER.... the views. There's a fantastic (pay) beach area right in town--complete with changing rooms, water slide, docks, wading pool, etc. We weren't able to stay for long but it may have been the most magical place I'd ever been. Quiet, quaint, absolutely picturesque. It's alpine water, so it's gonna be REFRESHING, but it's SO clean and SO blue and it was absolutely totally worth the stop.
If you can't stop here, i'd recommend ANY of the "lake-towns" along the way! Take an afternoon rest! Take a swim! get some food! RELAX!

This was a huge surprise to us. What a gorgeous area. Views of the Alps were unreal and churches, restaurants and shopping were a blast.

It's a huge 25 kms long lake with great views of the mountains and one can just walk around or swim in the lake. Views are breathtaking.
