The pictures speak for themselves. We went there on an Austrian public holiday so there were a few people around but we were told that on other days one can almost have the lake to oneself.

Whilst it is quite a long drive from Ebensee is well worth taking the beautiful drive. Beautiful lake with clear waters is extremely picturesque and in the summer a delightful place to bathe or picnic around the many many spots that are available

Offensee is a very quiet and remote, very beautiful lake. Easy to stroll along and many things to discover for adults and kids. An easy walk, espcially with kids, elderly and great for dogs, too.

This is a lovely lake with an easily walkable path around it. It is relatively flat and takes about 90 minutes to walk around. I would recommend this lake if you enjoy solitude and a leisurely walk.
