Beautiful Styrian lake surrounded by the Alps

If you are looking for a place of outstanding, unspoilt nature and a spot that fills you with deep appreciation and relaxation you should visit this stunning lake called Altausseersee.

It is located in a small village called Altaussee in Styria, which is a part of Austria. Surrounded by the Alps you will feel as if this is the most peaceful place in the whole world. If you are a person interested in landscapes and beauty in nature you will immidiatly fall in love with this gorgeous Styrian lake the very first you see it.

There are not many tourists here, only from time to time you will find some locals taking a walk around the lake which is surrounded by forests and mountains, which are part of the Alps. The only thing you will hear is the gentle, soul stirring sounds and silence of nature. What is truly fascinating about that lake is that it has a very high quality of drinking water. If you look into the water it is so clear that you will see a reflection of the surrounding mountains.

In winter when there is a lot of snow the entire landscape takes on a different kind of beauty and appears almost sensual and dream like. Also the people here are very friendly and polite. If you talk to the locals who live in the little village nearby you will find out that every stone and every plant has its own name and history. Every part of this lake is sacred to its people. Every shining pine needle, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing and humming insect is special to this place. We are part of the earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters, the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and man – all belong to the same family. What is man without such natural beauty?

If all of this nature was corrupted and the animals and birds gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit.

I therefore highly recommend a visit to this stunning lake to anyone who enjoys the beauty of nature. It gives us a feeling of infinity and everlasting peace. No matter how busy you are in your daily urban existence, this place will make you forget the speed, anxiety and disharmony of your life. It leave you with a sense of how small and insignificant we are compared to nature.

Nature is everlasting, it has been there long before us and will also be there long after we are gone.
