This picturesque mountain lake is located between the Dachstein Glacier and the peaks of the Gosaukamm. Its waters are cold, clear, and pure enough to drink! These perfect waters provide perfect conditions for breeding a large variety of fish. Thanks to its water purity, it is also one of the most attractive diving destinations in Europe. Hiking around the lake Gosau is a popular activity for both locals and tourists alike as well. During summer, the small mountain lake is a great destination for water lovers. The famous German traveller and naturalist Alexander von Humboldt named it the "eye of God."
