This mountain lake is by far among the most beautiful in Austria. Walk around it and enjoy the landscape, nature, the beautiful crystal clear water of the lake, the springs that flow into it, the ducks. Sit on one of the benches alongside this lake...More

This is just a good 35 mins drive from Gmunden and the lake is breathtaking. Fresh air, nice walks, what more can you ask for? There is also a big restaurant which we did not try, but the menu looked promising.
