Near the worth-seeing museum of local history at Ritzen Castle (Schloss Ritzen), you find the Ritzensee. It is an artificial lake built in a moory landscape. That way, the lake appears in a unique dark colour.
The Erlensee Lake located in the Tyrolean place Brixen im Thale is reserved for anglers only. Next to the lake there is a small restaurant named Fischerstadl. There one can have fresh fish dishes while looking at the lake from the restaurant’s terrace.
Right next to the railway station of Zell am See I had this great view of the Zeller See (Lake Zell) and the mountains nearby. Though the lake is pretty large it completely freezes in winter and is used for winter sports.
Wallersee Lake on a cold winter day. This photo was taken on train journey from Linz to Salzburg.
On the way back from the Moosersperre dam, down to Kaprun I took this photo of the Wasserfallboden reservoir through the windows of my bus.
