Weissensee, also known as White Lake, is located in Carinthia
at an altitude of 950 m above sea level in the middle of the Alps. It’s considered the cleanest pond in the country and is one of the best options to spend a holiday in Austria on the lake. The lake covers an area of about 6.5 km and has a depth of 99 meters. It got its name due to the unique color of the water, which is milky blue near the shores. The lake’s turquoise-coloured water is often compared to the water surrounding the Maldives. There are several nearby resort villages, such as Weißensee, Techendorf, Gach, and Oberdorf, which offer 200 km of hiking paths and 100 km of cycling paths.
During the summer, the water becomes a bit murky due to plant pollen; however, once autumn arrives, the water becomes absolutely transparent and the bottom can be visible at a depth of 30 meters.
Visitors can go diving, surfing, fishing, and water skiing, and there are places to play beach volleyball on the shore. Visitors can also rent electric and row boats, as well as catamarans and sailboats.
