Gruener See, Oberort

(4.7/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Incredibly beautiful place :-) Definitely worth a trip! If you walked from the parking lot to the Lake, believes you don't how impressive and beautiful the blue turquoise water of the Lake appears at once! It was a really relaxing day

  • We were in the winter there and it was very nice. The mountains, the frozen lake, the ducks etc. I recommend it to every next who is a lover of nature.

  • Comparable with the landscape of the Plitvice Lakes this hidden treasure is located in Styria at the the Erzbach. Recommended in the spring and summer. Here there's even a nice guest house where you can enjoy a refreshment. Must see and great destination.
