The crystal clear, emerald Green Lake is a magical place in the Hochsteiermark and has been voted the "most beautiful Platzl" in Austria.
The Grüner See, the "Caribbean of Hochsteiermark" in Tragöß, is a real insider tip. The lake is filled with crystal-clear, ice-cold water (5 to 6°C) when the snow begins to melt and reaches its highest water level in early summer at about 10 m. The Green Lake is even internationally known: In September 2014, actor Ashton Kutcher shared a link to a website that referred to the lake as "real-life Atlantis".
The Green Lake is the starting point for numerous hikes. Even in winter, the surrounding area invites you to do leisurely sports like snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Diving in the lake is no longer allowed.
