This lake is a small lake in an area of beautiful lakes. It’s too touristy for its size to be enjoyable and the landscape is not a pretty as nearby alternatives like Traunsee or Hallstatt. There are also limited food and parking options.

This area has a lot of hotels and pensions. This leads to a very busy town; however, it does have a small town feeling. With Bad Aussee only a few kilometers away, the conveniences of town are not far away.

Peaceful lake with not-so-cold water. Several points with facilities like chairs, sail boats, coffee/bear availability, etc. One can get into the water in many other points. Beautiful view of the surrounding mountains.

This is such a beautiful lake and the fact you can walk around it in just 7,5km makes this an advice for everybody to make that walk. You will not regret it. Awesome sights and if you wish you can eat or drink something halfway....More
