Lake Offensee

By bliba  
900 m long, 900 m broad, about 28 m deep. Nature reserve in the foothills of the Totes Gebirge mountain range, crystal-clear water, free access to natural beaches, gently sloping shores (perfect for children and non-swimmers). Haflinger horses - possibility of outings or rides in a horse-drawn carriage. Furthermore you can find a restaurant and a snack bar, well maintained hiking trails, the region's interesting fauna and flora and you can try to catch fish and hike through the Totes Gebirge mountain range. Plus: the former hunting lodge of the imperial family where Franz Josef and Sissi used to stay. In addition there's a beautiful mountain-bike course via Fahrnau to Rindbach bei Ebensee.
