The 0.9 square km alpine lake - Almsee - is situated 13km south of Grünau im Almtal. Since 1965, the area around the alpine lake is a nature reserve. The lake at the northern end of the alps “Totes Gebirge” (Dead Mountains) is max. 2.3 km long and 700m wide. By a huge landslide in the area Hetzau at the end of the Ice Age was the beginning of the alpine lake. The maximum water temperature is almost never more than 14-16 degrees and we see other than the swans and wild geese only a few swimmers in the alpine lake.

In addition to the native fish species are the wild geese mainly well-known. The ethologist Konrad Lorenz spent much time on the alpine lake - Almsee, where he made fundamental observations on them.
