We have been here last weekend with friends from Wiscon, they were simply stunned by the beauty of the area. We came here to hike up from the lakes to the Adamekhütte, an Alpine hut right beneath the Dachstein glacer. Wonderful! First we hiked past the first lake to the second; there we had a break and jumped into the... More

Set deep in the Salzkammergut is this beautiful lake at the end of a long valley. Our first glimpse took us a little by surprise as the lake only looked half full. Instead of a shimmering face of water having excellent reflections, it looked rather empty and sad. We got used to it eventually it was just not what we... More

We stopped here on our way to Hallstat and WOW, I'm so glad we did. The weather was beautiful and it was early in the morning, before any crowds. The restaurant just opened, so we sat outside, had a cup of coffee and just admired the view. It was so magnificent and beautiful and peaceful. Ton of snow still on... More

I took a bus to the Gosausee from Bad Ischl, the road was very beautiful, the village of Gosau itself was amazing. I took a long walk along the lake, it was amazing, thick forests, trails, nice colors on the lake, mountains everywhere, I would rate it very high among all alpine lakes. Even if its raining, and you cant... More

A mecca for bushwalkers and lake scuba divers, worth a visit for the view and the very traditional restaurant for a warming coffee and cake. Souvenirs can be purchased here also.

Take the Gosaukammbahn up the mountain to get a view on the impressive Dachstein. From there you can take easy or more difficult walks. Relax on the borders of the lake after your walk.

Every timevwe visit we amble around the lake enjoying the views. We like to finish our walk by visiting the Almhutte and partaking of the local beer and cheese plate. We ordered one to share but then ordered another as it was so good. Lovely people here.
