Grüner See is a lake in Styria, Austria in a village named Tragöß. The lake is surrounded by the Hochschwab Mountains and forests. The name "Green Lake" originated because of its emerald-green water. The clean and clear water comes from the snowmelt from the karst mountains and has a temperature of 6-. During winter, the lake is only 1– deep and the surrounding area is used as a county park.However, in spring, when the temperature rises and snow melts, the basin of land below the mountains fills with water. The lake reaches its maximum depth of around 12m from mid-May to June and is claimed to look the most beautiful at this time. In July, the water begins to recede.The lake supports a variety of fauna such as snails, water fleas, small crabs, fly larvae, and different species of trout . The flora is not abundant because of the rocky bottom of the lake. Furthermore, the lake’s depth is variable since its inflow comes from snowmelt.The lake was popular among divers who could observe the green meadows in the edge zone of the lake particularly in June when the water is at its highest. A bridge and a bench could also be found underwater. Furthermore, trails and trees could also be seen underwater.

  • All years back, when the snow melts, I must to Green Lake. Pure nature. You should go during the week to see however. On the weekend, you will find no rest. To make photos are beautiful, you need no filters, the water is turquoise and the beautiful area.

  • We were advised to stop here on our way to Admont Abbey, and I'm so glad we did. There's a parking lot and from there, there are several hiking trails to and beyond the lake. It's a short little hike ...  more »
  • Arriving in a 1 km-long walk from the parking lot to this beautiful spot. The Lake is very clear and breathtakingly beautiful. It is also possible to circumnavigate these, hike takes about 1 hour. Parking costs € 4 / day, admiration of the Lake there are but vain ;)
