Water temperature:

The Lake Gosau is a small mountain lake, embedded in beautiful nature with a view of the Dachstein!

One of the most famous photo points in the region

This small mountain lake, which has a preservation order, has been made famous not only because of its outstanding natural beauty, but also because of its clear, cold water which is suitable as drinking water.

Because of its purity, the water provides perfect living/breeding conditions for numerous species of fish.

Nestling amongst the highest mountains of the Salzkammergut. The world traveller and naturalist Alexander Freiherr von Humboldt was overwhelmed by the beauty of thelake and its crowning glory - the "mighty towers of the Dachstein", and described it in his works as "the eye of God".
