Lake Almsee Nature Preserves

Grünau im Almtal, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Lake Almsee is situated in front of the majestic mountain range of the "Tote Gebirge" which mirror image can be seen in the lake.

Lake Almsee Nature Preserve - pure nature

In this area, still the landscape sets the ton: pure nature and carefully protected environment. The lake is still one of the last mountain lakes without shore nesting. Till up today, lake Almsee has remained a jewel in the Alps with its fauna.
