The Steirische Bodensee Lake is an Alpine jewel set at 1,143 m (3750ft) in the Dachstein Mountains not far from the ski resort of Schladming.
The waterfall is the backdrop to the valley and is beautifully reflected in the crystal clear water. An easy walk can be made around the lake or extended with a bit more exersion to the base of the fall. For the more ambitious a very steep trail leads above the fall to two smaller lakes and another waterfall. The lake is accessed via a toll road and there is plenty of parking and a couple of chalets serving refreshments.
