With the highest mountain in the Salzkammergut in the background, the lake is one of the most photographed icons of the entire region.
Alexander Freiherr von Humbold, world traveller and naturalist, described the Gosau Lake as the "crowning glory of the valley, nestling amongst the magnificent walls and towers of the Dachstein". He also refers to the lake as the "eye of God" in all its splendour.
