With its surface of 46,7 km², Lake Attersee is Austria’s largest inland lake.
It consists of three basins of different sizes and depths – which are approximately
20 km long and from two to three kilometres wide. The deepest spot
is a depth of 171 metres. In the south, the Lake is confined by the steep
rock faces of the Höllengebirge mountain range (1.862 m)and the Schafberg
mountain; in the north, the smooth foothills of the Alps touch the green
shores of the inland lake. The lake’s west and east side is enclosed by the
wooded mountains of the Alps’ foothills. The blue-green and often turquoise
water of drinking water quality is crystal clear up to 30 metres down. Twentysix
domestic fish species have found their home in the crystal-clear depths.
