Now this is a magical place and I like to recommend it to anyoune who visits Austria one day. It's Lake Weissensee in Carinthia, the highest swimming lake in the Alps. We visited it first in 2003 and have been coming back almost every year. The lake is surrounded by green mountains and forests and only one half of it is accessible and has roads and houses. This ensures it to be a gorgeous, quiet and beautiful place. In summer the shoreline has a distinct white color in contrast to the green water which gave the lake its name ("Weiss" = White). The temperatures can reach 25 degrees Celsius in July/August which makes it a wonderful place for swimming and diving. We often had the feeling to be in the Caribbean! In winter the lake is completely frozen and lots of people come from all over Europe for ice skating (esp. the Dutch).
We have our special place to stay (I won't tell you where, it's ours!) and that's where this photo has been taken. You have a fabulous view over the water and into the Alps, almost each day a different sunset and light. There's nothing better than to have delicious dinner and then to sit and watch the spectacle. Guess what - I took this image while sitting at the table, no need to walk around :-)
