Just perfect place to spend the day, you can walk around the lake, the views are absolutely fantastic! The mountains around the lake are so different and the water is so clean... You have to visit this place and see how wonderful it is!

Take the Gosaukammbahn up, walk to the Hofpürlhütte, stay there for a night and return over the Steiglpass the next day. Eventually take a bath in the Gosausee. Beautiful, marvelous, magnificent.
