“In the valley of plunging waters” – A jewel in the heart of the Schladming-Dachstein Region!
Surrounded by beautiful mountains and some of the highest peaks in the area (Hochwildstelle and Höchstein) this crystal clear lake is truly one of the finest destinations within the Ennstal region.
The lake “Steirischer Bodensee” is 1.143 meters above sea level in the Seewigtal valley and can be reached via two 4,5 km long well maintained roads through either Gössenberg or Petersberg.
Once you get there you have the choice of a family friendly walk around the lake, a more challenging hike up to the “Hans-Wödl-Hütte” next to the “Hüttensee” lake or taking on the feat of conquering the summit of the “Höchstein” or “Hochwildstelle” mountains.
For those who would prefer a more relaxing experience, rowboats are available for hire.
No swimming is permitted in the lake!
