Lake Attersee is surrounded by mountains on all sides, thanks to which there is a special microclimate (mild winters and cool summers).   Alpine peaks rise on the southern side of the lake, and alpine foothills on the northern side. To the southeast of the lake lies the Schafberg mountain, which separates Attersee from Lake Wolfgangsee. Another mountain located in the vicinity of the lake - Hollengebirge.  

The water in Utters is clear and clean. It is home to a wide variety of fish.

The wind regime of the lake is favorable for windsurfing and sailing. In addition, tourists can take a boat trip on the ship.
