The three lakes in Gosau

Influencers and travel bloggers have made it famous: the Lake Gosau, a mountain lake embedded in a unique landscape with a view of the majestic Dachstein and very close to the Gosaukamm. A mountain lake that is used as an energy source and thus provides electricity for numerous households.

If you walk one hour further in the direction of Dachstein, you will discover the Gosaulacke from time to time. It is a so-called small water that is fed by small tributaries. In the event of snow melting or heavy rainfall, however, it fills up through the overflow of the Upper Lake Gosau, the third lake in Gosau.

The Upper Lake Gosau forms the end of the Gosau Valley. It lies at the feet of King Dachstein and together with the mountains forms an unique landscape whose beauty cannot be found a second time.

So it pays to take the path from the Lake Gosau via the Gosaulacke to the Upper Lake Gosau (approx. 1.5 hours). In all weathers you will be rewarded with magnificent views and a natural energy source.
