Beautiful scenery at the end of the road. Lovely lake reflecting the Dachstein Mountains. Lots of trails in the area for some rambling and a cable car into the hinterlands. Eat at the Gossausee Gasthof restaurant for anexcellent meal.

This is how the Alps should be. Absolutely stunning mountains on both sides, crystal clear lakes and a good walk. The walk up to the cafe at the top lake took us about 2 hours without hurrying. A tough walk, but made it with kids,...More

It's not so far of Hallstatt, just 20 minutes by car. Amazing lakes, amazing views, so nice watch and enjoy silence of that valley. There is a little hotel and restaurant where you can rest.
