Bodensee little known lake in the Dachstein region. You can already tell this by the number of visitors, where a foreigner is a rarity. This makes it more attractive to discoverers. The best way to get here is from Aich, but it must be calculated that the road to the lake is tolled. About 1.5 km from the lake is a parking lot. It is possible to rent a boat by the lake and take a ride or have a snack in the fishmonger's shop. A good tip is to go even further on the two higher lakes Hüttensee and Obersee. You will be thrilled by the beautiful environment, where as a tourist you will find the peace and beauty of the Alps

Lake Constance

The path of the three lakes

Bodensee little known lake in the Dachstein region. You can already tell this by the number of visitors, where a foreigner is a rarity. This makes it more attractive to discoverers. The best way to get here is from Aich, but it must be calculated that the road to the lake is tolled. About 1.5 km from the lake is a parking lot. It is possible to rent a boat by the lake and take a ride or have a snack in the fishmonger's shop. A good tip is to go even further on the two higher lakes Hüttensee and Obersee. You will be thrilled by the beautiful environment, where as a tourist you will find the peace and beauty of the Alps. Before I break up. I came to this place by accident. More precisely in the toilet. When we have one day left in Austria and where. I see some lakes on the map, so let's try it. Without knowing what it looks like, where we park and whether it pays. So we set off. A car park is 20 km from the Dachstein. You will probably be stopped along the way by an old gentleman who collects tolls for the road or parking fees. We come to the lake first. And there is a beautiful peace and quiet. We reach Lake Bodensee by a relaxing asphalt road. We are all surprised by the beauty. At that moment, I realized how the internet betrays all that beauty and we are robbed of the first moment, because we know what we are going to do and what to expect, and we were completely unpopular in this and this place. Here on the lake there is a fishmonger where you can have a snack. It is also possible to rent a boat. An ideal trip for people with children. It is a challenge for us to continue on to the other lakes Hüttensee and Obersee. Bodensee is located at an altitude of about 1140 m and the upper Obersee 1680 m. The second dominant feature of Lake Bodensee is the waterfall Schleierwasserfall, which has some 300 meters. There is also a prospect when it is practically possible to touch the waterfall. Here is probably the most difficult passage to ascend the waterfall. And for me, the most beautiful scenery will appear here. There is a beautiful cottage Hans Wödl Hütte. Here is again the opportunity to refresh yourself and it is also possible to stay and sleep here. And if you get caught in time, as happened to us on the way back. The atmosphere inside the cottage is wonderful. The ancient history of the cottage breathes on man. Lake Hüttensee boasts three waterfalls and you can't miss it. The path around the waterfalls leads to the third lake. The journey is not so difficult here. But it is possible to see the eastern part of the Dachstein in good weather. Before climbing Obersee, we will meet the last waterfall. It's not tall, but it's picturesque, as from the paintings. The Obersee is the smallest of all the lakes, but its location seemed the wildest to me. As I mentioned at the beginning, the place is less visited, it is a fact. That during the trip we met a small number of tourists and they all spoke German. After returning to the car, there was not a single car with a foreign license plate. Therefore, it is an impulse for me that this place is not profaned like other places.

Road to the lake

Here we were full of expectations, but this view was already beautiful.
